Rebecca Stoner is a 22-year-old student currently reading for a Degree of Medicine and Surgery. During her years at university, she was actively involved in the Malta Medical Students' Association, first as Medical Education Officer and then as Secretary General. It was through the MMSA in which she first discovered her interest in the world of education, and this encouraged her to take a more active role in her own faculty – she was elected as Student Representative on the Faculty Board of Medicine and Surgery.
It was through this new found interest that Rebecca expanded her knowledge and experience in education, by taking part in various national and international conferences, workshops and research, all relating to education. It was also a great privilege for Rebecca to be able to present some of her own education research at some of these conferences.
As KSU Education coordinator, Rebecca is excited to continue working on the empowerment of students in their own education, for which THEY are the largest stakeholders. Becoming comfortable with any situation and accepting the status quo is something which we all find a little too easy to do – we need to be aware of our capabilities and our potential to change things.
