Study in Australia's Northern Territory Scholarship

2018

My name is Piseymonicole, I am a student from Cambodia, currently enrolled in Certificate IV in Building Design and Drafting. Upon graduation, I hope to continue with a Bachelor of Design.

I am very excited about the opportunity to study at Charles Darwin University. In 2016, I met CDU academics, who visited my international school in Phnom Penh and talked to us about the university and the international atmosphere of the city and campus. These descriptions were very encouraging and I am so thrilled to be here, in Darwin, living my dream while also being close to home. I have always been interested in cultures, designs and symbols.

Learning about the Northern Territory and drawing on experiences of the diverse people living here is already enriching my life. As a student I did my best to bring international experiences to my own school in Phnom Penh. In 2016, I initiated a project linking schools in Cambodia with the schools in the NT. Today, as a student at CDU, I continue this dream and have already met with school teachers of Darwin in order to facilitate this connection.

My experiences to-date and my desire to be one of the ambassadors of Cambodia in Darwin will assist me to be an excellent student and a valuable member of the CDU and Darwin community.
