The last 6 months overseas were a great experience, Hong Kong and China are culturally unique, and I have been immersing myself with the language, traditions, history, religion and people. Hong Kong Polytechnic University was a start point for my adventures, where I met many other students which I can now call friends, all from different backgrounds that got together to share an academic semester. But then, with the urge of cultural absorption and at the end of my studies, I decided to travel China alone with a bag for two and a half months, all to encounter the most beautiful and still mystical place I have ever been to. Now I am back in Melbourne, sharing exciting stories with my friends a family and ready for my last semester at RMIT.[Previous: 2nd Prize]
