    It’s been 9 months since I moved to Australia for university, and in this 9 months I feel I have learnt more than what I did the rest of my life, moving away from home. it’s been a very challenging transition, although I am better settled now and everyday seems better, I believe getting hands on such a resource (the book) will be definite help in my journey of transitioning to Australia.

    Hi Meld Magazine team,

    I’d like to be the one who wins this book because I, for one, will not be using it just for myself. Some of us already know what it’s like to pack our bags and relocate to a country halfway around the world. Some of us experience “culture shock”, depression, anxiety, homesickness, and other mixed feelings about leaving our comfort zone back in our homeland. I would like to try and help fellow students to think positively and encourage them to grab the opportunity of a lifetime by pursuing their studies in Australia and participating in cultural exchanges. As a student council member, I will ensure that the information and insights gained from reading this book will be passed on to new students in order to prepare them for life in Australia, as well as to help them get acquainted with the Australian culture and way of life.
