“I started my Australian diploma course in July 2012. I have a major interest in beauty and skincare so the programme is perfect for me. I’m hoping that it will really expand my beauty and skincare knowledge – I’d like to start my own skincare line one day.
“This isn’t my first time in Australia – I travelled here on a working holiday visa for two years and loved it, so wanted to come back and study. I’ve got lots of friends here from my previous travels, which is great.
“I was so excited to get back to beautiful Sydney, it’s my favourite city in the world! Though I do of course miss my family and friends back home, my friends here in Australia feel like family to me now. I live in the backpacker hostel that I used to work in. It’s great for socializing and it’s in Ultimo so right in the city – I’d recommend it to anyone!”
