International student Ishini Tennakoon
For Bachelor of Business and Design student Ishini Tennakoon, feeling supported during her studies has given her the confidence to make friends and enhance her job-readiness.
‘I began to step outside my comfort zone to expand my network, and proactively participate in co-curricular activities. This has enabled me to form not only new friendships, but also professional connections with academics’, she says.
‘Griffith recognises their students’ differences and provides us with the resources to grow, connect and be part of the community. From personal experience, I highly recommend reaching out to the International Student Buddy Program. The program enabled me to connect with an existing Griffith student for weekly catch ups, which helped my transition to Griffith much easier.’
Ishini has also joined a number of university clubs and societies to build a strong network of friends and professional mentors in the business and design industries.
‘Being an executive leader of different societies has opened many pathways, that cultivates my development from a shy high school graduate who was unsure of herself and her purpose, to an industry-ready university graduate with goals and a long-term plan’, says Ishini.
