My Wonderful Story:

Captured by QUT Guild

Coming all the way to Australia as an international student, taking up the study of Business majoring in Marketing. As a Marketing student, it’s a craving for the fun, exciting and challenging job! In fact, I was born for this sort of job!

I’m born and raised in Hong Kong, where everything is always bustling, they don’t call it the city that never sleeps for anything. When I first arrived in Brisbane, I found that its lifestyle suits someone that would be looking to retire, amazing and slow-paced.

During my me time, I love to coop myself up in the room with a box of ice cream while binge-watching YouTube channels that I’m subscribed to. In a more casual setting, I particularly enjoy editing videos and taking photographs as I find it to be really enjoyable! I am really a playful, talkative person so if you see me on the street, don’t hesitate to call me!

Photoshoot for QUT

Being the President of QUT Hong Kong Student Association for the past year, provided me with a lot of exposure to the International Student network. As a President of QUT HKSA, it also teaches me to become a leader and handle all kinds of risk management. Besides, I have my own female accessory business, so managing online accounts, creating and publishing marketing promotions on Facebook and Instagram are familiar to me.

Pleased to work with Brisbane City Council and Advvy as my internship in one semester in my final year of uni, giving me a chance to showcase my potential ability. I am proud to see the changes that I have made on their official website, and created an additional interview video for them! Needless to say, working in the government body and a start-up company, I built up my professional networking and local working experience.

In my last semester in uni, I was honoured to take up the role to work at my uni, the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) International Communication Team. Balancing the workload for my part-time job and study, I found myself more capable to deal with deadlines and stresses. I like how challenging I am in an environment that continues to push me and train me to be ready for the real-world. Btw, I was also a QUT International Digital Ambassador, so if you are interested, feel free to read my student life blog post!

My career ambition is to become a wonderful Digital Marketing Director, suit myself with a pair of heels, what an ideal strong businesswoman looks!

After graduation…

I then worked and lived in a tropical jungle – Singapore. Read my My transition from QUT to Singapore, to Apple blog post, you will find out what made me leave Australia for Singapore.

After that year in Singapore, I moved to Hong Kong and worked for a political party and then moved to Vancouver, Canada. Feeling more used to the cold weather here too! Worked for the higher education industry, then spent a year in the Middle East for the unreached and vulnerable populations.

Everything happens for a reason!
