Believing in yourself is key to success

May 5, 2023 - 1 min read

‘It’s been a vibrant and colourful experience,’ says CeCe about her time studying communication at Deakin. ’I wouldn’t trade it for anything.’

 ‘I’ve got some best friends here in Australia that I’ve met throughout the years.’ – CeCe

But it was not always easy. After moving to Melbourne, CeCe found that she was missing her family back home in Vietnam. She reached out to Deakin’s student support team who provided counselling to help her settle into her new life.

When asked what advice she would give her younger self, CeCe replied ‘Believe in yourself. It’s ok to reach out for help and it’s ok to not feel ok.’
