How I connected with diverse communities in Sydney

Kang is studying a Bachelor of Computer Science and Commerce at the University of New South Wales.

About Kang

Kang was attracted to study in NSW after hearing stories about Sydney as a child growing up in China. He enjoys the diverse culture that has connected him with many different communities.

Kang previously participated in the Australian Business Essentials program organised by the University of New South Wales, which recommended several volunteer opportunities and guided him on how to start. By volunteering, Kang practiced his communication and problem-solving skills while broadening his social network, and most importantly, he gained a sense of satisafaction from helping others.

Kang’s tips

“If I could go back in time, I wish I had known more about Australian slang before I set off so I wouldn't have to open Google when chatting with friends!”
