Hi, my name is Mandani Tennakoon and I’m an international student from Colombo, Sri Lanka.  I decided to study abroad in Australia for an entire academic year because I fell in love with Australia the first time I visited and was disappointed I couldn’t spend more time. My experience in Australia gave me lots of friends from all over the world and helped me figure out things about myself and what I wanted to be studying and working with. Also, I love hiking and Australia was the perfect place for it. Learning about the aboriginal culture and enjoying all the pristine beaches are some of my highlights from study abroad. Please reach out if you have any questions about my time there or if you wanted to learn some new Aussie slang.
