Sydney Direct Enrollment - University Of New South Wales
Hi, friends! My name's Claire Kelley, and I'm a senior studying journalism at the always gorgeous and green Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. My hobbies include, but are not limited to, eating pepperoni pizza, going places I've never been, smelling the insides of books, and yelling at people who litter. I am amped to check Sydney, Australia, off my bucket list, and even more excited to tell y'all about it.
Being in Australia is changing my mind about stuff – not that my mind is something that ever solidly lands on things – but the way people live here is making me rethink my next few months, or years, or decades maybe.
I think it’s a familiar feeling: You go on an incredible vacation or take an excellent road trip, then try to tell someone about it when you get back and you end up saying stuff like, “Yeah, man, the beach was, like, so great! And I ate this burger that was, like, really good.”
That’s what I hope doesn’t happen here, even though I always have trouble putting the best weekends of my life into words.
So I’ve arrived in Sydney, which is such a weird thing on its own. This city is beautiful with its curious architecture and merciless sun, and I think it fits me well. But who knows how many places I could say that about?
