Meet Michael

In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, next best thing is the wrong thing and the worst thing you can do is nothing. My decision to take up the Masters of Professional Accounting with the Charles Darwin University in the Northern Territory is one of the best things for me.

Once you make a genuinely thougthtful decision, the universe conspires to make it happen!

I am currently in the first year of my Masters and I just can’t speak enough of my appreciation for the sense of diversity the Territory prides itself with. The support from the international student office is a sine qua non for the synergy amongst the international student community like magnets to metals.

My stay in the Northern Territory has been more or less a recipe for the very best life. It has been encouraging and uplifting as well as exciting and frustrating. I have met wonderful family members from other parents many of whom I unequivocally call brothers and sisters, as I have had the opportunity to share some of the best moments of life with.

The very first opportunity for me came through the highly organised orientation ceremony by the Charles Darwin University. This event gave me the first platform opportunity to meet with various students from diverse walks of life, many of whom I share a common goal with namely, a sound educational degree from a rich multicultural society.

I have had the opportunity to travel to a few other countries abroad, some on adventure, however coming to the Northern Territory has exposed me to places like the Crocodylus Park, Kakadu Resort, Alice Spring Desert Park, the sacred Uluru, just to mention but a few. This has awakened my alertness to explore more opportunities, but most importantly, exploration at discovering more of the international families I never knew I had.

This great leap out of my comfort zone has taught me a great lesson about decisions. That in life we get to make so many decisions, sometimes positive other times negative, however once we make a genuine and thoughtful decision, the universe conspires to make it happen. Your decision as in my case to pursue international studies here in the Northern Territory is surely one that the universe will conspire to see it happen, because it is a life experience worth telling.
