Ella Shi - Digital Organising Assistant

Answer

Hi, I’m Ella. My role is all about working on the organising team’s digital communications. I’m originally from Melbourne but working with GetUp has taken me to a place or two!

I came to GetUp after working as a student union officer, and writing for and editing various student media and campus publications. I see my role with GetUp as the perfect combination of my various interests across writing and politics. I have primarily been driven by a passion for racial justice, but over time, this has expanded with the recognition that tackling one area of social inequality inevitably means tackling them all.

On a side note, I also have a background in English Literature and Art History and Curatorship, but if this has taught me anything, it’s that everything is political — even seventeenth century ceramic vases.
