VUW’s international student office was of great help for international students like me and many others. Adjusting to a new environment with our own upbringing and “baggage” was/is never easy. As for me, as a single mother with 3 very young children who also joined me in Wellington, such support has been greatly appreciated. The Office was super supportive in helping us finding ways to address every hurdle.
I am the one in blue with a headscarf. The other two ladies are also VUW Alumni from Indonesia, who also received scholarships from NZAID. The three cute girls are all mine!
