When you think about University, you think of it as the place where you are going to build the foundation of the skills and knowledge which will be required through a lifelong career. Indeed, in an increasingly competitive world, this foundation needs to be solid enough to improve your critical analysis as well as the ability to give creative solutions to our everyday problems. In this sense, I realized that the University of Queensland provided all the tools I needed to be successful in this challenge: highly qualified lecturers who give me not only the theory, but a clear understanding of reality; a program which continuously challenges you and demands no less than your best; and a supportive and kind administrative staff, which combined with resourceful libraries gives you everything you need to excel at your duties. Now I am confident to affirm that I will be a highly successful professional, contributing to enhance our social welfare.
