Pacific networks: Meet Eliorah Malifa

17 September 2020

Crawford School introduces our fantastic staff, so you can meet the people of Asia and the Pacific’s leading graduate policy school.

From meeting Fiji’s only female Lieutenant Commander to tattoo artists in Micronesia, Marketing and Communications Officer Eliorah Malifa tells us about the incredible variety of people she works with for the Australia Pacific Security College.

What is your role at Crawford and what do you enjoy most about it?

I am a Marketing and Communications Officer at the Australia Pacific Security College. I haven’t been in the role for too long, but it’s been so interesting so far. I think the things that I have enjoyed most about it are the people I have been able to meet as part of the media we have been putting out. We are producing podcasts for which I have been able to speak with Fiji’s only female Lieutenant Commander, and documentaries for which I have been able to work with academics in Samoa and tattoo artists in the Federated States of Micronesia - it’s really great.

Can you tell us about one of your personal highlights working at Crawford School?

COVID-19 has changed the world as we know it, so, one of the innovative things I have had to be involved in is the creation of online learning resources – this has been pretty monumental and fun.

Describe your home office for us.

It’s a little underwhelming! It only really consists of my laptop and me moving around as I need to, to remain comfortable. I’ve been telling myself I need to work on my home office, but I’ve also been coming into the office more since campus opened back up.

Can you give us your top tips about how to stay positive during the COVID-19 outbreak?

I exercise every day, and use the technology we’re using for work as a tool for social catch-ups as well.
