I moved to Colombo in 2015, partly for the convenience of living on campus and partly because I prefer to cook my own food.
Originally from Singapore, I began my studies in media, transferred to exercise physiology which first took me to foundation studies. The transfer was sparked when I started the UNSW Fit Club, which would have been impossible to do if I were living off campus. It’s been such a great success and we managed to get more than 200 members in the first 5 weeks!
I’ve made invaluable friendships living at Colombo and I truly believe they’ll stay with me for the rest of my life.
