The Northern Territory is calm and peaceful. It has lots of opportunities in the field of research and Charles Darwin University had my subject of choice to further my study.
I came to Darwin in February 2016 as an intentional student. As I am from Nepal (temperate climate), at first, I found this place very hot and humid. But slowly I got used to it and started liking it. The most beautiful thing about Darwin is its sunsets, they are beautiful. The city is small but vibrant. People are nice and helpful. Part time jobs were easy. Places like Nightcliff jetty, Fannie bay, Casuarina beach, Mindil Beach and the Waterfront are some of the most awesome places I visit more often. It’s a calm and quite place and I love my stay in Darwin.
An interesting fact about me is that I worked with many international volunteers during the devastating Earthquake in Nepal as IDV volunteer (2015). We all worked as a great team and I learned more about time management, work priorities, leadership and hard work. Being engaged with Rotary International gave me confidence to speak in front of people, being humble and working for the benefits of others.
