    Hi there,

    My name is Jelisa. I started studying a Bachelor of Child, Youth and Family Practice on the Gold Coast campus at Griffith University in 2022.

    As a member of the Griffith Mates, I shared my travel and arrival journey on Instagram and I’ve written about my international arrivals experience below for anyone deciding to study at Griffith.

    I hope you enjoy!
