Ella Shi - Digital Organising Assistant


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.
