I have achieved what I wanted in life at a much earlier time than I had anticipated. Pankaj said that every day, you learn something new, as he reflects on his fulfilling time at JCU. As a student, you are constantly learning with the goal of graduating. Take the initiative and start your overseas education journey early.
