Video transcript

Initially I decided to come here and study because I wanted to complete a PHD in engineering, my profession.  

For me, winning this award is really good. It’s a recognition that encourages not only me, but all the people that come here as international students and want to become part of Victoria and Australia. It’s possible and I have had a really good experience.
