    Being an international student at St Margaret’s has provided me with many wonderful opportunities.

    I have been lucky to participate in a wide range of extracurricular activities, from sports to music and cultural pursuits. I especially enjoy being a member of the badminton team and the school choir. As a member of the international group, I have organised cultural activities for the international and local girls, promoting and embracing the diverse culture that makes up the St Margaret’s community. I have also been able to engage in a highly academic environment with supportive teachers.

    I am thrilled to have been given the chance to participate in a leadership role next year as an International Captain. In my role as a school leader, I will assist in organising activities for the international student body that encourages inclusivity and friendship, as well as fostering connection between the international and local students. I will also act as a buddy or older sister to the other international girls. I know firsthand how important it is to have a support person who can assist with the transition to studying in Australia, and who can also be someone to rely on.

    Boarding at St Margaret’s has been a new but wonderful experience. The boarding community has become my second family, something I have really valued during a time where COVID has kept us apart from our families. Everyone treats each other with love and respect. We are basically like sisters. I love living in the vibrant, culturally diverse city of Brisbane, especially enjoying the pace, most notably the work/life balance, as well as the culturally diverse food scene.

    I aspire to work in medicine when I graduate from St Margaret’s because I want to be able to help people suffering from disease and contribute to society by making medical treatment more accessible for patients.

    I was attracted to studying in Brisbane because of the laid-back, balanced lifestyle, making the move from Hong Kong at the start of 2020. In that time, St Margaret’s has nurtured my love of learning in an environment that has allowed me to balance wellbeing with high academic achievement. The academic teaching staff are supportive and giving of their time and knowledge, and always encourage me to strive for the best.

    As an international student at St Margaret’s, I have had many opportunities to develop multiple skills. Academically, I have participated in writing competitions and ICAS examinations. I have enjoyed being a member of the school’s badminton team and, recently, have discovered my passion and potential as a gymnast through the rhythmic gymnastics program.

    I am also honoured to step into a school leadership position next year as International Captain. My fellow captains and I will aim to promote inclusivity and togetherness, focusing on strengthening the unity of the international student body while also enhancing the bond between international and local students.

    The highlight of my St Margaret’s experience has been the treasured friendships I have made. My friends have helped make my St Margaret’s journey and I know that the memories we are creating will be cherished and remembered forever.

    Boarding at St Margaret’s has been challenging at times, mostly because I have not seen my family in so long due to COVID. However, I have received incredible support from the boarding community and find comfort and warmth among my fellow boarders and the boarding staff.

    When I graduate from St Margaret’s I plan to continue my tertiary studies in Australia.
