TFA welcomes Rosina Baumann

The Fulcrum Agency is delighted to welcome Rosina Baumann to our studio! Based in Sydney, Rosie is a Butchulla woman, final year architecture student at UNSW and joins us as part of our involvement with the CareerTrackers internship program. 

These are Rosie’s thoughts on why she wanted to work with us:

My university experience has taught me that my interests and passions span across multiple industries, and through studying a Bachelor of Architectural Studies I have begun to realise that I can use this knowledge to work across multiple industries with a primary focus on the built and the design (I use these terms loosely).

The majority of students who are at the same stage as me in their degrees have jumped into the machines that power the big corporations, that's their starting point. I wanted the Fulcrum Agency to be my starting point given how I’d like to begin my career once I graduate.

The work that I’d seen produced by the Fulcrum Agency had some very key factors in this decision. Many companies are now working with remote Indigenous communities or at least attempting to, though they’re only doing it now after a background of ignorance. I first noticed the Fulcrum Agency as their work demonstrated growth from this ignorance, they actually worked with and for communities. This is the type of social justice action that I most resonate with. I find that many people want to tackle the big corporations to fight for First Nations rights. These people are doing the work, although I would rather work with the people, than for them. I found that this was a similar attitude appearing in The Fulcrum Agencies’ work and that really secured my decision to gain an internship here.
