Congratulations Gold Coast Ambassador, Rouen!
Ten International Student Ambassadors have been chosen to promote the City of the Gold Coast to the world, and Rouen Thouen is one of these!
Rouen completed a rigorous application process involving a written paper and a panel interview to be considered for this prestigious position. Not only is Rouen the only Ambassador from Cambodia, he is actually the only school age student in this group of ten! Rouen will have the opportunity to provide regular updates about his life and experiences here as a student on the Gold Coast. Some of these include a visit to Dreamworld, Gold Coast Suns matches, Lantern Ghost tours, Seaworld, Thunderbird Park, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Sunset Safaris, surfing lessons, whale watching, Movieworld, and a tour of Skypoint Observation deck! Sounds like some tough gigs there, Rouen! The ambassadors are expected to share their experiences via a number of social media channels. The ambassador program will cover workshops aimed at enhancing social media skills. The ambassadors also undertake a number of mentor sessions. Rouen was appointed to this position by Mayor Tom Tate at a civic reception at the Gold Coast City Council Chambers. This initiative supported by Study Gold Coast is an amazing opportunity for Rouen and we wish him the very best with his ambassador responsibilities. We look forward to following Rouen's adventures as he shares with the world why he loves being an international student on the Gold Coast!« Back to Index
