Meet Naomi, AMPed’s newest Vice President!
When she’s not helping our social & professional events teams cook up a good time, you’ll find Naomi speeding around a netball court, hunting for Brisbane’s best lychee martini, or coordinating comms at Croft PR.
“My advice to students would be that it’s never too early to get involved in clubs and venture out into the industry! I didn’t know anyone when I first started rocking up to first year events solo, and I’ve found an incredible community and a few awesome internships as a result. If you’re looking for opportunities, sometimes you’ve just got to get out there & make them happen.”
Part time go-getter and full time uni student, Madi is AMPed’s 2023 secretary AKA lead internal communication and organisational coordinator. As she steps into her final year of university, studying a Bachelor of Business (Public Relations) and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Creative Writing), she’s reaching for the sun.
This year she’s focused on building her skills before graduating and making great friends. Both of these goals are attainable through AMPed’s endless opportunities. See, AMPed is the type of club that is focused on providing value to its members through expansion, experience and expertise. There is no doubt that anyone can find what they are looking for and Madi definitely has, whether it be for a great social event or networking opportunity. She can’t wait to see where a year working with AMPed takes her.
"Moving into my 3rd year of university as a Marketing and Digital Media student, I decided that I really needed to live up the experience and get more involved in both the student community and the AMPR industry. With this in mind, I decided to join the AMPed Executive team and I can tell you it’s been one of the most fulfilling and validating decisions I’ve made thus far in my university life.
As Treasuerer for AMPed, I am so excited to test my own knowledge, taught by my studies and gain experiences and connections that will benefit myself as a professional in the real world. I can’t wait to bring everyone amazing content across our community and I look forward to seeing everyone at future AMPed events!"
Faith is a Marketing and Creative Industries student in her final year of a dual degree. This year marks the beginning of her executive journey with AMPed starting as a Marketing Officer and now Marketing Director. Throughout her time at university, she has developed many theoretical skills, however nothing can beat the real-life experiences offered through being involved in AMPed. She has volunteered much of her time at multiple Gold Coast based community groups, offering her support and knowledge in social media management, publicity, and marketing.
"AMPed offers value in not only developing industry connections with up-and-coming young people in business, but also lifelong friends and relationships."
She can’t wait to see how working with AMPed in her final year can not only prepare her for the real world, but also make it the one to remember.

She hopes to bring her candid, exubrant energy to the AMPed team and hopes to make meaningful and long-term connections with members through her knowledge of fashion, health, pop culture and motorsports.

AMPed represents quite a lot to him, including everything from personal development, to great social experiences, to giving back to the student community, just as AMPed has done for him.
