⠀ 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⠀

Have you walked through the “Spanda” sculpture at Elizabeth Quay, created by internationally-renowned artist Christian de Vietri. We think that the Spanda and @ElizabethQuay looks fantastic at any time but it looks great at sunset. @doyle.snaps #elizabethquay #spanda #perth #westernaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #soperth #sunsets

I would encourage future students to step out of their comfort zones and give themselves a challenge once in a while. Take advantage of all the opportunities that are available to you and try something new, as you never know where that might lead you. ⠀ ⠀ - Shuhui Yong, StudyPerth Student Ambassador
