Alyssa Lai is in Year 12 at Bendigo Senior Secondary College. She is 16 years old and lives in Kennington. She originally came from Malaysia and moved to Bendigo in 2014, and has enjoyed it ever since!
Alyssa says the best thing about Bendigo is the abundance of opportunities. Some of her highlights have been being elected President of the Student Leadership Team at Bendigo Senior Secondary College and playing a key role in organising her 2019 Formal. This year, she won the Victorian State Final of the Lions Youth of the Year competition where she proceeded to the National Final in Geelong.
Last year, Alyssa was the Treasurer of BSSC’s Student Council, and was also involved in NEXUS’s production of “The Sound of Music”. She is an executive member of the Victorian Student Representative Council (VicSRC) and has been since 2017. She was also an SRC member at BSE from 2015 to 2017. She participated in the National Youth Science Forum and is interested in science, specifically environmental science.
Alyssa's passions include: the environment and sustainability, giving students a voice, mental health, and youth empowerment.
Alyssa looks forward to being on your Youth Council and making changes in the Bendigo community.
