I chose TAFE because it is known for the quality of its courses. I wanted to develop skills that would be valuable for me here and also back in my home country.  I graduated from university back in my country, and I plan to study an international master degree. But in the meantime, I was looking for a more practical and shorter course that would help me with the confidence to go on with my studies.

When I came to Australia to live I didn’t have strong English skills so I couldn’t speak well and I couldn’t understand anyone. I worked in a café as a barista. I watched the chef in the kitchen and he was happy to show me how a kitchen worked. It was from then that I really found my love for the kitchen.
