I love nature. I was born and have grown up in the countryside with a clean environment and a variety of natural resources. However, with urbanisation, I witnessed changes of environmental quality as well as the loss of natural resources. Previously, I worked for six years as an environmental manager in Camau city, Vietnam.

I study horticulture at TAFE and there is good infrastructure here. We have a nice greenhouse and retail section. You see a lot of plants and that obviously helps because seeing a plant in real life is not the same as studying about it in a book. There's a lot of practical activities and the lecturers are very passionate as they've been in the industry for many years. This is different from the professors I had at university.

I’ve learned much more about the Australian culture and nature and this is what I was looking for, to work in sustainable landscaping.

I chose a new career to come here and start again. Western Australia has the most amazing plants in the world. This made it much easier to study here.
