I feel very proud that I received the Destination Australia Scholarship. I thought it would be impossible, now my perspective has completely changed because when we attempt for something with dedication it is never out of our grasp. I would like to suggest other international students planning to study at CQUniversity to do the same. I am very thankful and happy that this scholarship has made my life so much easier here in Australia.

The opportunity to be an Australia Awards Scholar has been an exciting yet challenging experience both academically and socially. Upon completion of my studies, I plan to return to my paradise, Papua New Guinea and contribute to improving higher education with ICT as a facilitating tool. I foresee opportunities once considered as impossible to be achievable as a student on my way to be a modern educator and leader.

Being a MORA Scholarship awardee is a blessing to me. I met new friends from many countries and we shared our ideas together. I also met teachers who guided and supported me during my learning process. They are all are dedicated people.

My earlier studies have been unforgettable experiences, and have enlightened and prepared me for my PhD. I am thankful I have supervisors who have passion regarding my topic of interest.
