Coming to Adelaide because of the high calibre of research opportunities, Diana says studying in a different cultural setting has opened many doors for her.

"I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to study this area of research in Malaysia, so during my time in Adelaide, I have found that learning in a different cultural setting allowed me to experience a different mindset."

<p.>In addition to participating in a traditional Malaysian dance group at OzAsia Festival, Diana has volunteered to be on the Malaysian Council of Students Australia.</p.>


"This has helped me to better adapt to life in Adelaide; allowing me to mingle, meet new people and become part of a community," she said. "It has also allowed me to help new students better adapt to life here".
