‘I met a lot of friends from my class. It’s provided me a lot of opportunities to try new things.’ – Selina

Selina has met people from around the world while studying occupational therapy at Deakin’s Geelong Waterfront Campus. ‘My classmates give me a lot of support,’ she tells us. ‘No one will judge you.’

Living in Geelong with a diverse group of close friends has helped Selina grow. ‘They just understand me. I’m so lucky to meet these guys.’
