Andini (pronouns: she/her/hers)is a second year PhD student at the Department of Health Services Research and Policy, Research School of Population Health, College of Health and Medicine. She is from Indonesia, and moved to Canberra last March with her husband and two children.

She has been enjoying attending PARSA events since her first month in Canberra, and especially appreciates the ones which are family-friendly. PARSA helped her and her family a lot in a time of transition, especially with balancing her role as a parent and a student. This is what motivated her to join PARSA as a College Officer. Her research topic, which also her passion, is breastfeeding policies in hospital settings, which can give children the best start at life. She has also joined the Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace Working Group at ANU. She believes children are our responsibility and our future. Therefore students who are also parents, especially who come from other countries, need to be considered, as they have specific challenges during their time at ANU.
