I think being a woman means that I can wear colourful clothes and I can do many things that men can’t do, like going shopping for a long time, many men may be bored with this.

I have been here for just five days. I’m a student and I’m busy everyday but I’m happy with this busy life.

I came here to achieve my dream. I’m here for my master’s degree and my major is actuarial science. In the future I want to be an actuary and it is necessary to get my master’s degree in order to enter this field.

My first favourite thing is my camera, I can use it to record my life—the happy times, but also I think it’s a good thing for me to remember my life in the future. My second favourite thing is my computer because it helps me to keep connections with my friends and family in my home town. My third favourite thing is my shoes, they help me to go to different places and accompany me for a long time.

I think the life here is very slow and I can enjoy my life freely. I can enjoy the beautiful scenery and not have to hurry.

I think maintaining my health and wellbeing is not a hard thing for me because I have to walk for nearly half an hour or one hour a day to catch the bus. I think that walking is the best way to maintain my health.

The hardest thing for women in Canberra must be catching a bus, we can’t run as fast as men!

My perfect day in Canberra would be to get up late in the morning and then go to a park and do nothing, just enjoy the beautiful scenery there.
