The Board of UN Youth Australia · Divisional Representative Director
Rhianna joined UN Youth Australia last year as the National Secretary, joined the Reconciliation Working Group, founded our National Data Committee and among it all, has loved it so much she is continuing with the Board as a Divisional Representative Director for 2021-22! She is passionate about the power of education and its contribution to the empowerment of young people, as well as the influential role that leadership can play in that journey. She is excited to maximise UN Youth’s impact internally and externally to organise, capture, and achieve our goals as a rich and diverse group.
Outside of UN Youth, Rhianna’s time is focused on her work in the Assurance division of one of Australia’s largest professional services firms. She is part of the firm’s RAP Working Group, Environmental team, and loves to champion new joiner accessibility to social impact opportunities.
In her spare time, Rhianna loves to travel and has backpacked to almost 30 countries with plans to continue when it is sensible to do so. She believes the greatest part of travel is the opportunity, if you take it, to absorb the magnitude of what is possible, who it’s possible with, and the role every person can play in achieving the possibilities that inspire and excite for the future.
