2018 NSW International Student of the Year Awards – Higher Education Winner
I am Forough, international student. I am from Iran. Australia is well known because of its sheep industry. That was really important for me because I’ve come from a farm family. I am studying at Charles Sturt University. CSU has a very strong school of animal and veterinary sciences and has a good employment outcome. We are here to study but at the same time we are here to learn a new culture uh, engage with the people to understand how is their life how is our life and compare it how we can engage with them better to learn more. I enjoy every moment of it. Australia is very friendly. It’s kind of great relationship you feel. I never feel that you are out of that community you are, you belong to that community. I’m so lucky that I’m here.
