To mark International Women's Day this year we are celebrating some of the professional and academic staff who make our College a world-leading insitution for research and teaching on Asia and the Pacific.
In this piece, we chat to RegNet assistant administrator Tyler Malone .
What inspired you to get into your area of work and why?
I wanted to get out of hospitality work and I was fortunate enough to be offered a position at RegNet (The School of Regulation and Global Governance). Being able to work here is amazing because you get to interactive with all our wonderful academics who do such amazing work in their fields of expertise.
Who is a woman you look up to?
My grandmother because she raised 7 children from 1952 onwards and was alive through out all the years that Indigenous Australians weren’t even thought of as being a person, especially being a woman as well. It would have been terribly hard but that is probably why she was a strong woman.
What motivates you?
Travelling because I love being able to travel and explore this wonderful world of ours.
What are you most proud of?
At the moment it would be walking in Sao Paulo Fashion Week showcasing Indigenous inspired designs by Vanessa Moe.
What’s your advice to your younger self about choosing the right path and judging life’s demands?
To just don’t be shy and that everything passes eventually.
Tyler Malone is an assistant administrator at the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet).
