Vice Chancellor Professor Ian O’Connor has expressed his condolences to Emma’s family, as well as those within the Griffith community who knew her.
Emma’s most recent academic achievement was the completion of a Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics in 2012. A group of fellow students from Griffith Film School created a private video tribute to her. In the video they write “You made a lasting impression on us, we admired your generous spirit … Your beautiful light will be missed.”
“Emma was a popular and well respected student,” Professor O’Connor said.
“Her death brings this tragic event very close to home.”
