Back home in Sicily I studied marine biology but I always wanted to come to Australia. South Metropolitan TAFE is one of the best institutes for aquaculture in the world. There is nothing similar back home. I am currently designing a project for a barramundi farm which is really exciting. I love this institute the environment is very stimulating. There is a good balance between practice and theory. My class is very multicultural with lots of different backgrounds. My lecturers are very passionate and knowledgeable. They succeed every day in transferring their passion and love of aquaculture. I feel very lucky to study here.
