I am glad that I have finally completed my studies in Australia.
It has been a fruitful learning experience studying in the Australian National University (ANU).
My university is located in Canberra, Australia.
Do you know that Canberra is the capital city of Australia?
Many of my friends thought that Sydney or Melbourne was the capital city.
I recently attended my graduation ceremony. I had the opportunity to see my friends in Australia again. I also took the opportunity to bade them farewell.
Why it is a good choice to study overseas?
Four simple reasons!
(1) You get to meet people from all cultures and forge new friendships with people from around the world.
I met people from Europe, Asia and America while I was studying in Australia and had forged lasting friendships. I plan to visit my friends from various parts of the world in the near future.
(2) An opportunity to appreciate the country's food and sports culture.
In Australia, I had the opportunity to try various interesting cuisines and fresh seafood.
One interesting food that Australians love: Vegemite
Another interesting dessert: Pavalova
I have tried lebanese food, greek food, mediterranean food and many more.
I also had the opportunity to appreciate a new sport, Australia Football League.
(3) An opportunity to travel, explore and discover places of interest
I travelled to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne while I was studying in Australia.
In April 2011, I also took a quick trip to Christchurch, New Zealand to visit a friend after the recent earthquake in February 2011. I had the unfortunate encounter of experiencing a 5.3 magnitude aftershock. It was an encounter that I would not want to experience again.
(4) An opportunity to live independently
It was a treasured moment of independence!
I had to cook, do household chores and buy groceries on my own. (No domestic helper or mummy to help you when you are alone. )
Nevertheless, it was a terrific opportunity to have an apartment of my own. I had the opportunity to host birthday parties and invite my close friends for tea. We also had regular baking parties where we baked scrumptous scones, biscuits and cakes for tea.
Do consider an overseas education if you have the opportunity!
