“Australia Awards gave me the much needed space and freedom to connect with people to share my journey with, and I learned a lot from them. In fact, the linkages did not end with my graduation from the University of Newcastle; I felt that the connections have become much more relevant when I returned home. I'm grateful for the network of Australia Awards alumni with whom I get to collaborate with until now on projects that are meaningful to us.”
