At International House I have had the chance to undertake leadership roles such as being a member of the Student Club and being an O week leader.
My highlight of residing at International House would have to be doing O week as a fresher. I do not think there will another time in my life that will be as fun as O week. It was 8 days of just pure fun. I made so many great friends and incredible memories. It was also the first time I had lived out of home and O week was great to help me settle in and make IH a second home. All in all it was just a great week!
One thing I didn’t expect is just how close I would become with the people I have met. I knew I was going to make friends but I didn’t know how close I would become to them. I now consider a lot of the people I have met at International House not just friends, but family. Coming from country Victoria, there were not a lot of opportunities for me to interact with different cultures, so I saw IH as a great opportunity to do this while also being able to make life-long friends.
At International House I have had the chance to undertake leadership roles such as being a member of the Student Club and being an O week leader. Through these roles I have gained valuable leadership experience, and I now feel extremely confident leading groups and talking in front of large crowds.
