Hi, my name is Hiu Ling Siu from Hong Kong. I am studying Master of Teaching at the University of Tasmania which can be challenging at times, but I enjoy learning how to be a better teacher and make an impact inside and outside of the classroom.
Teaching is my passion and it is something that I do every day. I have joined a range of volunteer programs to help young migrants and refugees adapt to their new environment and provide them with academic support. I am also part of a public speaking club and have to give a speech on a weekly basis. It is a whole new experience for me and a great way to boost my self-confidence as well as improve my speaking skills, which are highly beneficial for my teaching.
Tasmania is my favourite city in Australia so far. In particular, I love the strong sense of community as I can always see someone I know on the street. Bushwalking is another reason why I love Tasmania as I can see lovely beaches, spectacular mountains, and breathtaking hiking trails on my doorstep.
