Hello. I'm Norris. I am currently studying Bachelor of Environment and Society. So this is my third year, and my last year of my study.
TEXT ON SCREEN: "WHAT'S THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IN YOU NOW, COMPARED TO WHEN YOU STARTED HERE?"
I guess is the sense of belonging towards RMIT. In the very first year, I'm too timid to join any activities or communicate with any teachers or students. But starting from year two, I have joined a lot of different RMIT activities like dance class or yoga class. And I have a job on campus, as well.
This is the point where I communicate with more staff members and students. So now, I don't want to leave RMIT anymore because I have a lot of friendships and good friends here.
TEXT ON SCREEN: "HOW HAS RMIT HELPED YOU PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE?"
RMIT, of course, is the course that I have enrolled in. Is like the course has provided me with a lot of environmental knowledge. And I have joined the industrial mentoring programme, as well. So they will have industrial expert to help me more about my career in the environmental field. And the job shop from RMIT is really useful as well. So they will provide useful tips on writing cover letters and resumes.
TEXT ON SCREEN: "WHAT'S NEXT? HOW DO YOU PLAN TO SPEND NEXT YEAR?"
Well, I guess language is really important to me, so I'm planning to study a new language, probably Japanese in the language school. Maybe Hong Kong or Japan or in Melbourne.
TEXT ON SCREEN: "WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE LIFELONG CONNECTIONS YOU'VE MADE AT RMIT?"
I have made the lifelong connections with the teachers so they will provide me with a lot of career tips and then the environmental field knowledge. And then the life connections with students probably is like the friendship. And we can share our difficulties when we study together. Or in the future when we need to find a job in the field.
TEXT ON SCREEN: "IF YOU COULD GO BACK TO WHEN YOU STARTED AT RMIT, WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOURSELF?"
Probably I would ask myself to step out of my comfort zone more, like earlier. Because RMIT has a lot of different good activities. So if I can step out of my comfort zone earlier, I can join more activities and connect with more friends.
