Current TUSSA Student Council Members

Laura Dungo

Laura Dungo

President

Hello fellow Seminary students! My name is Laura Dungo and I’m a third year MDiv Clinical Counselling student. I’m also the Seminary Student Council President this year. When I’m not preoccupied with school, I enjoy watching movies. I could talk about movies and actors for a really long time. One of my favourites is Inception. If I weren’t studying counselling, I’d be interested in studying film. I’m interested in learning about creative people’s process, as I also like music and visual arts. In general, I really enjoy listening to people and their interests and passions in life.
