Toltu Tufa
Psychology student

“My passion is helping people in diverse communities to get better access to health care, particularly for mental health.

If you have a healthy mind and a healthy perception you are more likely to achieve your goals. I believe it’s all about mental state. ACU helped me achieve the right mindset to finish my studies, so now I can facilitate a similar mindset with people I work with.”
