"I came to study International Relations at ANU to fulfill a childhood dream. I always knew that I wanted to study overseas and the first time I saw the ANU campus was such a moment of pride. The program has provided the best academic expertise and amazing opportunities for me to engage in contemporary content as a student."
On graduation day I was feeling a bit nervous because once you confer the degree, that's the end of your study. Now you go back into the job world and try to find your way into life and build a career for yourself.
It was daunting to attend the ceremony and receive my certificate, but it was very exciting to know that I have achieved this qualification. It hasn't sunk in completely - I will reflect on that moment when Chancellor Gareth Evans handed over the testamur. It's the beginning of a long journey ahead for me.
