My name is Shreya Mishra and I am from the large and populous India. Indians are sometimes referred to as loud and boisterous, and those two words describe me perfectly once I get over the initial awkwardness.

I am pursuing a Bachelor of Psychological Science at the University of Tasmania. I am studying psychology partially because I am passionate about raising awareness about mental health and well-being, but mostly because it brings me the closest I will ever come to mind reading and living out my villain fantasies in this universe.

I moved to Tasmania not too long ago, right before the pandemic struck, which in turn brought us international student's closer together as one big family living together on this beautiful island of Tasmania. There are a lot of things to love about Tasmania including the exciting new experiences, the amazing people who welcome you as their own and the breath-taking natural beauty that I am yet to explore. But one of my favourites still remains the colours of the beautiful Tassie sunsets and the sunrises (ironically, I am not a morning person at all). I have seen a lot of dusks and dawns but the one's in Tasmania are the ones I would capture in my memories forever.
