6. How has TAFE impacted on or changed your life?
Studying at TAFE has given me the opportunity to interact with people of different cultural backgrounds and helped me to understand and respect their interests and cultural differences. This has positively impacted my life and has allowed me to break out of the comfort zone of conservatively and a lack of acceptance in which I lived in, showing me that my concept of normality was wrong and that NORMAL means social and cultural acceptance.
I’ve always thought it is important to have goals to pursue that encourage you to get up every morning. But now I think it’s more important to stop worrying about what Is beyond our reach and experience what you have in front of you, to not let them slip away and give value to all the little things, each small moment that life has to offer.
