“The Global Citizenship Program has definitely given me a greater global perspective and stronger sense of future direction. I realised how much the world has to offer and that the possibilities for employment and travel extended beyond Victorian borders. Europe showed me a remarkable history and culture with architecture that left me speechless on countless occasions. South Korea got me fascinated in cultures that are considerably different to ours, and gave me a unique perspective not only on Australia’s strengths, but also its weaknesses. Finally, my time on the Hill fuelled my love of politics and international relations, providing me with a passion that I did not have before my travels. Combined, it gave me a new appreciation for my life here in Australia, as well as a strong desire to participate in the international community.”
Next international endeavor: Starting as a policy graduate at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in February 2012.
