Mr Rupak Subba is Bhutanese but lived in Nepal prior to arriving in Australia in March 2014. Mr Subba attended AMEP classes in 2014–15. Mr Subba provides an insight to his experiences as an AMEP student with TAFE NSW.
‘My name is Rupak Subba. I came to Australia on 21st March 2014 from Nepal. Since my arrival in this wonderful country, I have always experienced best days of my life. I visited many beautiful places around Sydney and they are really fantastic.
In the process of settling in, I joined TAFE English class [AMEP] to improve my understanding about Australia and its culture as well as to improve my English. I was really happy and fortunate to have friendly environment and wonderful teachers in TAFE. I could update myself and also internalise myself with different skills that could help me stand up tall. I thought of testing my abilities and applied for a job and guess what! I was successful. This was all possible with the help and guidance of the kind teachers.
At last but not least, I just want to say to new migrants that ‘Rome was not built in a day’ and also keep trying and aim for the moon, even if you fail you will land among the stars.’
