Hola everyone

Hola everyone,

I am more that happy to join in this community. I am Lorena, from South America. I have been living in Australia 6 years and I really love this country. I am social communicator but once I moved to this country I had to start from the beginner, initially as I could not speak english I was very afraid about everything here, but the life has been showing me how strong we can be and how with perseverance and patience we can adapt to new environments.

I love animals, meditation, yoga and dancing. I strong believe is important give us at less 5 minutes everyday to connect with ourselves and also I enjoy having time with friends and family.

As a part to find my purpose of life I realised I want to study community services - mental health. Supporting people and listening diferents perspectives is what make me happy life, that is why I am here.

Hoping we can have lots conversation around.

Hi LorenaC,

Wellcome to our forums!

Well done for learning to adapt to your new environment and learning a new language….. I understand how hard it would have been when you first moved to Australia.

Looking forward to seeing you around our forums 😊

Hi Small wolf,

Well as I decided to change my path jumping from marketing and communication to community services. My plan is next year start a diploma, in the middle time i am having a look some certificates or course in mental health to doing online whereas we are on lockdown.

If maybe you have an idea about any course related could be great.

Personally ... I did a Diploma (in Counseling) through AIPC - you can do it online and self-paced.
