I came to Perth approximately two and a half years ago, around June. I decided to come to Australia as a high school student because I wanted to experience a different social and educational environment in which I can compete on a global scale. I also decided to come to Australia at an early age to learn how to be independent and not rely solely on my parents. At an age this early I had to learn many valuable life skills such as making a resume and finding a job or even learning how to cook for myself. In the long run, I want to go to university here and hopefully being able to pursue a career in medicine or health science-related fields. I would also like to expand my own personal social network, meeting and making new friends as I am a very outgoing and people-oriented person.
