Get to know a CBD-based international student - Mansi Tiwari
When did you arrive in Melbourne?
I came here back in 2019 straight after finishing my high school year 12 in India. I always wanted to get independent and was very curious to explore, and that’s how I chose my destination to study abroad.
What course are you studying?
Hospitality management at Holmesglen TAFE
What are some cultural differences you have observed?
The major cultural difference that I noticed was of referring teachers by their name, I was bit shy at first and thought it’s going to be disrespectful as I come from a culture where we refer to them as sir or madam.
What are you favourite places to visit?
Cafes and some of the late-night eateries are best around the CBD. I love going to late-night rooftop bars with my friends. •
