Course – Bachelor of Commerce (Management)

I arrived in Perth in December 2018 (on a visitor visa). I decided to study a Certificate IV and Diploma of Leadership & Management at TAFE. My study at TAFE started in February 2019. Afterward, I took an Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management at Academies Australasia.

I have always been interested in leadership roles since I was a kid. I had a few experiences leading a team back home. Those experiences make me wonder how to lead better, as that is how all those well-known world leaders become who they are. I wish to learn about this through my studies.

I want to work for a not-for-profit organisation like the United Nations in the future. I wish to be able to help people with my work and not only focusing on profit.

I really enjoy public speaking and sharing my experiences with others. I listen to music daily and read self-development books in my free time.
