The Macquarie University Global Leadership Program – GLP – is a university funded extracurricular program that can be undertaken alongside any degree. Students complete two core program requirements An intensive internationally themed workshop series run by leading academics and experts. And cross cultural practical activities such as volunteering internships, seminars and conferences. GLP is a very unique program. which allowed me to know more about cross cultural collaborations or cross cultural understanding. GLP is both theory based and practical based. We got to learn from industry experts, as well as get our hands on projects that we can work on ourself. Through the Global Leadership Program I’m up to date I get to interact with local and international students. We exchange our perspective on issues. The type of people I meet through GLP’s is people from all walks of life, from other countries, and they all study different fields. It encourages you to explore, to try out different things, step out of your comfort zone. The thing that I love most about living in NSW is the mix of culture. The diversity that I experience everyday. It was a very liveable city to me, and I felt safe and that was something that was important to me especially coming overseas and living abroad I find myself a mix of Vietnamese & Aussie.
