Auckland Catholic Tertiary Students
Auckland Catholic Tertiary Students (ACTS) aims to create a community for Catholic students to grow, share and express their unique Catholic faith while at University.
Kia ora and Mabuhay! I’m Angelica, and I’m taking a year off med to do a Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours) at the Liggins Institute. My faith holds me steadfast against the waves of stress from my studies, and the ACTS community filled with endless love, hope and dedication for the Lord inspires me to live by the Spirit and spread the Good News to all we meet. I am committed to building and enriching the brotherhood and sisterhood present in ACTS for UoA and AUT students through my role as President alongside my executive team of 2023.
God bless always!
Hi! I’m Angeline and I come from a very small city in East Malaysia called Kuching which literally translates to “cat” from Malay! I am very grateful to be your Vice President of ACTS for the year 2023 and contribute my light of faith with you. Being part of ACTS allowed me to find a community I can always rely on for support and fellowship. I am wanting the same for you and I am excited to meet you all this coming year and to support the Catholic community within the university as much as I can.
Hi friends, I'm Leon and I'm studying Engineering at the University of Auckland majoring in Civil and Environmental Engineering. I love music (especially choral singing), the beauty of nature and gardening. I am excited to be a part of the ACTS team for 2023 and to help and see students grow in community and in the deepening of their Catholic faith and relationship with Christ.

Talofa lava, My name is Nikita! I am Samoan, Niuean, NZ European. I am studying towards a Law and Arts degree at the University of Auckland. A few key things about me are that I’m hearty 685, and I’m also a hearty Catholic born and raised!
