Walking on sunshine while studying at USC in Australia!
I am almost done with my first year at USC where I am doing a Bachelor of Nutrition degree. Moving to Australia was both terrifying and the best thing that could ever happen to me.
When I first arrived here I did not really know what to expect. Australians are the friendliest of people and an international student like me needed a little bit more help than others. Australians do love helping me.
I have made some amazing friends here that I call my family. And oh, all the places you will go! There is never a boring moment here on the Sunshine Coast. Here, we actually walk on sunshine!
If you had told me over a year ago that I would leave everything I know and move by myself to the other side of the world, I would have thought you were crazy. But here I am.
This year I have definitely learnt that you have no idea what is ahead of you and that you can do anything you set your mind to.
