"I decided to study overseas in South Africa and Indonesia to gain practical experience in the community sector and test myself in real-life situations. My time abroad challenged me in so many different ways and I had many beautiful and touching moments that have continued to be beneficial as I've returned home and begun to apply my new knowledge and practical skills."
