The feeling of a dream coming to reality is best explained when I got my visa for Australia to study at QUT. I was nervous and excited. New country, new culture, new beginnings, new friends, creating opportunities for myself; but it also meant getting out of my comfort zone, returning to studies after a good nine-year break – and not to forget self doubt!
In July 2014 I started my studies at QUT in Masters Business Advanced (Applied Finance) as an international student. Imagine the excitement, fear, uncertainty and millions of crashing feelings I felt when I first arrived to Brisbane from a 36 hour flight (Mexico City – Los Angeles – Fiji – Brisbane). My first impressions of Australia were similar to most of the international students : A paradise full of friendly people that you will not understand half of what they are talking about. Do they even speak English?!
