Four years ago I would've never thought that I would be at one of the best universities in Australia. I didn't even know I would be in Australia.
I was born and raised in Greece. Greece used to be the place everyone wanted to visit.
As the years passed, things started getting really bad with the economy. I knew my life was ruined. My dreams were over.
Until the day when my dad asked me and my family: "Do you want to move in Australia?"
I was 14 years old and full of excitement. I said yes.
At the age of 15, I lived in a country where I couldn't communicate well.
I didn't want this to stop me from success so I tried hard every day and did the best I could.
College was harder than I thought but I was successful. I got a great ATAR and everyone was proud of me.
Sitting on my couch now with ANU Reporter at 18 years old and after all those struggles, I know that ANU is the place for me.
ANU is the place that will help me make my dreams come true because I can finally dream again.
