“I’m a third-year student doing a Bachelor of Commerce conjoint with Global Studies.
“I studied French for five years during high school. After seeing I could learn a language by doing I Global Studies, I decided to take it along with Commerce.
“Global Studies is really enjoyable because my conjoint is quite math and graph heavy. So having Global Studies helps make my studies more creative and more subjective.
“Global Studies is really a tight community. Everyone I have met has been friendly and welcoming, and I just enjoy talking to people and seeing how they see the world.
“You meet a lot of people from different cultures who are learning the same language. I learned French in high school, but there are some people who only begin at university. So, you can teach them and help them in their journey while they help you as well.

“In the long term, I want to work with the UN. I’m from Taiwan, and my Dad’s Indonesian as well, so I’m Taiwanese Indonesian. With my cultural background, especially with my Global Studies degree, I feel like I’ll be able to incorporate different cultures to help the international organization.
“I would highly recommend Global Studies to anyone who is considering it. Learning a language and studying an area you’re unfamiliar with teaches you a lot. Meeting people who have so many different perspectives also helps you develop soft skills.”
