Ladies & Gentlemen Welcome to the 2018 NSW International Student Awards Local government, we’ve got TAFE Schools, Universities and businesses All here celebrating international students And to reward them tonight is just a fantastic thing I was surprised when I found out That I’m a finalist So it means a lot. This event is hugely significant For international students in NSW I think it’s just very, very great to get some recognition To see that all our stories are heard our actions are valued International students can make a big change in the society and gives me a voice and added confidence to use my creativity to make more changes Education is genuinely a global business and in NSW and Australia we’re committed to being part of that global citizenship Time to announce the winner! These awards shine the spotlight on those young people who are doing amazing things The main benefit is a growing awareness
among the Australian community about the importance of the international education sector And those students going back and down the track
will be world leaders They’ll have that continual friendship and engagement and trust with the whole of the Australian community International trade is a huge part of what we do and having students from those countries that we’re going to
be trading with studying alongside our domestic students Means that they get an understanding of their culture They form relationships and it’s going to enhance our local students as much as it is our international students So this is a true win, win.
