Tell us a little bit about yourself and your achievements to date
Originally from China, I have been studying in Melbourne for more than four years. Apart from completing my studies, I am an active member in university mentoring programs. I am also involved in various programs such as the Beyond Melbourne Ambassadors Project and Study Melbourne LIVE Projects, enhancing my overall experience in Melbourne.
What are your goals for the future?
I would like to pursue a career in business analytics or business consulting. It would be highly exciting to derive insightful information from a huge amount of data. I’m also passionate about teaching and passing on knowledge to others. Therefore, I am still debating between these two directions.
Why are you excited about being a Study Melbourne Student Ambassador?
Being an Ambassador for me is an opportunity to interact with like-minded people. It is not only a platform for me to share my experience living in Melbourne to new international students, but also for me to learn from others’ stories.
What do you love most about living and studying in Melbourne?
Melbourne to me is such a diverse cultural melting-pot. I love the fact that I get to meet people from all over the world and get to know their cultures. Besides, authentic food from all over the globe can be found in Melbourne which is a bonus for a foodie like me.
What are you most passionate about when it comes to supporting other international students?
The mental wellbeing of international students is always my number one concern. Coming into a new environment by ourselves, I think it is extremely important for us to know that it is okay to feel not okay. We need to be aware of the available services and learn when to seek help.
