Why did you choose to study on the Sunshine Coast?

I researched on the internet on where is a great place to study in Australia. That is why I decided to study on the Sunshine Coast. If you want to stay away from the hustle & bustle of the city, I think here is where you should go.

What do you love about studying on the Sunshine Coast?

It is surrounded by surf beaches, beautiful buildings, parks, gardens, restaurants and everything a student would need., high speed wifi connection & places to relax and have fun!

What do you love most about your educational institution?

Empowering — the schools/government provide students with the resources they need to pursue the projects they want. People are also so supportive of one another!

Name your favourite spot to visit on the Sunshine Coast and why?

Mooloolaba Beach, because it is very relaxing and the scenery is amazing.

Do you have any advice to other students thinking of studying on the Sunshine Coast?

Choose the career path that they will be following long term.

What do you want to do when you complete your study (career aspirations)?

I may apply everything that I've learned in my school and will certainly open my own business one day in the Philippines.

Why did you choose to become a Study Sunshine Coast Student Ambassador?

Because I saw some of their videos on YouTube and I knew that one day I will do the same. To inspire other students that if I finish my study here, they can make it too.

Is there anything else we need to know about you?

I lived in Canada for more than four years. I was thinking of going back there to study but I decided to study here on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia and it is one of the best decisions in my life.
