    I went camping during my study abroad program at University of Sydney in Australia. This camping trip was to the Basin campground in Ku-Ring-Gai National Park arranged by the Myanmar Cultural Society from the university.

  • Gender Identities and How to Appreciate Them While Abroad

    I used to get judged by people for the way I styled my hair, the way I dressed and the way I behaved. Many people think that I am trying to change my gender identity to a female. My family members as well as my friends think that I am going against the cultural and…

  • How I Learned to Trust My Path

    “What are you going to do after you graduate?” This is one of the most dreaded questions a college student may ever hear. For many people this is an anxiety-inducing question, but for me it has always been an easy one. Since I was 13, I knew that I wanted to go into the medical…

  • There’s More to Life in Australia than the Beach

    These past few weeks in Sydney have gone by so fast. So fast that I occasionally have to stop, catch my breath and pinch myself because it still hasn’t dawned on me that I’ve actually made it to the other side of the world. My second week of classes are officially over and I’ve had…
