Hi, I am Yue from Anhui Province, China. I am known as Amy. I originally went to Charles Darwin University (CDU) as an exchange student from Anhui Agricultural University for one semester and had a unique experience in the Northern Territory. I came back to Darwin in July 2016 to pursue a masters degree. Now I am in my last semester doing Master of Public Policy, a new major, in CDU.
Some people asked me, 'Why did you choose to come back?' I think there are three reasons behind it. First is its proximity to Asian countries. Compared with southern states, the Northern Territory (NT) enjoys a great geographic position and has a closer relationship with Asia. This provides a better platform for me to find a job in dealing with public relations, especially with Asian countries, in the future. Secondly, the NT, especially Darwin, is a multi-cultural but authentic English-speaking area. Darwin is a quiet and definitely a good place to study. The third reason, and also the most important reason is the hospitality of Darwin people. Teachers, classmates and even strangers are all willing to offer valuable advice and help to me, which impressed me when I first arrived and continues to be a huge support now.
