Maya moved to Australia to study
I moved to Australia to study here. I'd never lived away from home. I left all my friends and family behind. I was so sad but also really excited. At first I was really homesick and I cried myself to sleep most nights. Things here were different to what I had at home. I eventually adapted to being around new people and made some new friends through joining a University sports team.
I met other students from overseas and we stuck by and helped each other.
Now I have life long friends and I know we'll always keep in touch even if I move away again.
