Meet May

I came to Darwin more than five years ago on a working holiday visa. I fell in love with this place, the freedom and the relaxed and friendly environment. I didn’t really speak English at the beginning, however, it didn’t stop my life and I got help from everyone. So I decided to stay in Darwin to study and develop myself.

By studying in the Northern Territory I have received the help of many teachers and classmates who are all patient and enthusiastic. Through language school, I found my interest and after graduating I decided to start my hospitality life. I’m now a cookery student studying a Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery at Charles Darwin University. 

I got far more than I expected studying in the Northern Territory, including: unforgettable memories, knowledge, confidence, learning the right attitude and the opportunity to learn from the best. Within a year I have improved in all areas. I’ve had the opportunity to follow chefs and even create and develop my own ideas and products. I can see my future after this hospitality course.
