‘Going on road trips, climbing mountains and finding new spots to enjoy the sunset was a luxurious thing to do back home.In New Zealand, it is now only around the corner! UC has diverse students, majoring in different subjects, so there are many personalities. Being part of the Canterbury Malaysian Student Association (CMSA) gave me so much warmth, to be around with people of familiar tongue and culture. It is often a relief to hang out with them!’
