The financial aspect of traveling was always a large consideration for me but thanks to Swinburne's generous scholarship program and the support of the Swinburne Abroad office, I was able to travel on all of my overseas experiences with some form of financial support.
After graduating, I continued to travel and work overseas in New York, across Europe and in Montreal. More recently, I have returned to study my Masters to further specialize in my field.
I think the all of international experiences fundamentally changed the way I saw the workforce. I gained a global perspective that helped me look beyond Australia for opportunities. It was all three of my international experiences that helped me nail down where I see myself in 5 years’ time and I didn't feel bound to the Australian workforce.
My overseas experiences have helped me gain complex cultural adaptability, confidence in diverse professional settings and a sense of comfort in new environments.
