Meet Rogerio Pomaro, Student Ambassador to Embassy Brisbane

Embassy English Student Ambassadors participate in Orientation Day presentations and extracurricular activities, and they offer valuable advice about site-seeing, local cultural events, and adjusting to life far away from home. These Ambassadors act as a “buddy-system” for our  students, so that everyone has a peer who has already experienced Embassy and can be an adviser and new friend from day one. This week, we met with Rogerio, a Brazilian Student Ambassador to Embassy Brisbane
