21 Oct QUALIFY ME! Student of The Month – Randy Stevie
Randy Stevie (Indonesia)
Guys, hope everyone is having great day! Well, I want to share a little story about me. It has been around 6 months since I landed in Sydney. Today, something remind me to my first day in Sydney, the cold air, the wind. I still remember how nervous and the excitement being in this city for the first time. Time passes very fast, I remember all the good times and bad times, the ups and the lows for the last couple of months… I came from Pontianak, Indonesia, a place that I call my home town, a year ago, I can’t really imagine about living in Australia, now here I am. In just about 6 months, I think I can really survive here, seizing all the opportunity the city could offer.
As an International Student, I think I am very lucky. I meet good friends, I go to great places, I go to beach, I go to snowy mountain, and most importantly I can study and work. I must admit that it is not easy to survive in this big city, I work at Mamak Malaysian Restaurant, one of the busiest restaurant in Sydney. I work as a kitchen hand 🙂 I must say that it is a hard work, especially in peak hours (which almost everytime 🙂 but I learn a lot. In fact, I am now thinking to continue my study in Hospitality. Maybe someday I can open my own restaurant. Yeay!
Well, at tough times I really miss my family, I miss my friends at my hometown. I just feel that I am lucky enough I have good friends here around me, even at my workplace. And, I guess today should be the perfect time for me to say thank you to Qualify Me! Just like an Oscar winning speech, I won’t be here without Qualify Me! I know it sounds a bit cliche, but seriously, Qualify Me! is my family in Australia. And as a part of Qualify Me! Family, I am wishing all Qualify Me! family members a great success and happy spring time. Cheers!
