“My name is Heibrance and I am pursuing a Diploma of Information Technology at TasTAFE in Hobart. I am currently undertaking an internship at Government Education and Training International and I am a mentor for TasTAFE’s International Student Ambassador program.”
“It takes some time before you find out your true passion, and I am glad I found mine, which is why I am studying Cookery at TasTAFE. Tasmania is a place where a perfect balance is reached between wild nature and human civilisation. Nature shows its beauty from every snowy mountain top to every sunny, sandy beach. Tasmanian people are warm and friendly. This is where I find my inner peace and gives me the strength to become a better self.”
“I’m Dewi. I’m a Malaysian living in Tasmania since January 2022 and currently studying Diploma of Nursing with TasTAFE. Pro Facebooker, K-Pop enthusiast, Malaysian cuisine aficionado, certified cleanaholic, tea addict and dog lover are some of the things that describe me. I see myself as a fun loving person who enjoys meeting new people. I love nature walks and exploring new places, but I also enjoy learning new cooking recipes and eating them. My life mantra is ‘knowledge is power’ and ‘Life is short, so make the best of it’. ”
“My first part-time job in Australia has brought me to the culinary industry. Prior to the studying commercial cookery in Tasmania, I was doubtful about my cooking ability. With the top-quality training at TasTAFE, I am now confident that cooking will be my career. I wish to inspire and share the experience of stepping out of their comfort zone to explore possibilities and ourselves with other international students.”
“I went to Tasmania to improve my English and because of the beautiful scenery. My journey at TasTAFE is unforgettable as I met so many supportive people, including teachers and classmates, to assist me in pursuing my career. All the teachers here are supportive and responsive. Tassie really has the most beautiful scenery in all of Australia. It has the cleanest air in the world, combined with its unique wildlife, making it one of the most amazing places in the world. Also, relatively low living costs have created a slow pace of life, and the people here are generally more enthusiastic and friendly. Tassie is one of the places that everyone should visit in their lifetime.”
“My name is Nigel and I’m from Zimbabwe in Africa. I am proudly African and like to mix and mingle with everyone despite their race or gender. I am studying Community Servies at TasTAFE.
