⠀ As one of the fastest growing cities in Australia, Perth is gaining more and more international visitors. For that reason cultural diversity is widespread. The diversity brings a wealth of new experiences and learnings. I’m always interested in listening to people's stories, where you can learn from it and somehow experience it. ⠀ ⠀ Leo Manuel Cadete - StudyPerth Student Ambassador⠀
