I completed Year 8 and 9 at Bundaberg State High School and then transferred to the Queensland Academy for Creative Industries, Brisbane with the help of my inspiring International Student Coordinator in Bundaberg.
In Queensland, the teachers encourage and nurture you to be your very best, achieving remarkable outcomes.
Although I was the only Chinese student in Bundaberg, I never felt different. The community and school embraced my mum and I as locals.
I quickly made friends-for-life and any concerns I had quickly vanished as my new life became the best life.
My Regional Queensland experience will forever stay in my heart as the true Australian experience.
My advice for anyone thinking about studying in a Queensland state high school is to be brave and explore the world.
