My name is Yeongseon HAM, a student who studied the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care in October 2014 and graduated in April 2016. After completing my diploma, I continued my career at the childcare centre where I worked in Melbourne to apply for a Graduate Visa and I’ve obtained the Graduate Visa.
While I was working in Melbourne, I was fortunate to find a childcare centre that wanted to sponsor me to apply for an RSMS visa as a group leader in Darwin. At that time, there was a lot of news talking about immigration law was getting stricter so I have decided to move to Darwin to take the job as a group leader at the center in Darwin in July 2017. After applying for the RSMS visa in January 2018, I finally got my permanent residency in February 2019.
Before I started studying at Academia, I exchanged many e-mails with the marketing manager in Academia and had many consultation sessions with him. After I started my course with Academia, every time I met him at school, I remember the grateful memories of his greeting and so many important information shared by him.
Academia was not just a place where I finished my diploma, but a place that made me dream of my future, and by studying with my Academia friends, it was a place that gave me a better understanding of their culture and a mindset that respects cultural diversity. It was a place that made me feel precious, and although it was still in its infancy, it was the place that made my dream in Australia come true. Studying at Academia was an excellent choice and I feel proud of my choice.
I would love to see all Academia staff and greet you if I have a chance to go to Melbourne. Thank you for always working hard for the students.
Wish you are all healthy and hope to see you again soon.
