Meet Michael

I am one of the scholarship recipients from Negros Occidental Province in the Philippines, I am proud to represent my province, country and school as one of this years’ StudyNT student ambassadors. I arrived in Darwin in January 2019. It was a pleasant surprise seeing such a well-planned city with nature on your doorstep. It is also a great place to study with all the comforts of city life and the tropical outdoors. It is my first time in Australia and I must say that, I was really impressed of how the system, government, private sector and the public work together to create such a diverse multicultural city.

Northern Territory is truly the gateway of Asia to Australia or vice-versa. Its close proximity to Asia makes it an ideal destination for students like me to study, work and live here. With a huge Asian population, it was not hard for me to adjust and also the friendliest locals will make you feel welcomed and at home.

I have so much to explore, to experience and to share with the world about Darwin and the Northern Territory.
