Aquaculture Research – Australia
I have had an incredible time here in Nelson Bay. From my work placement I have gained lab & fieldwork experience in a government facility – invaluable experience that should hopefully help me with my future career.

I spent just over a month with a family in The Woodlands, around 25 miles north of Houston, TX, USA. As a medical student I was hoping to gain a broad spectrum of experience within the healthcare system, as well as experiencing family life in America.

My hosts, along with their family and friends made me feel hugely welcome and comfortable from the moment I arrived. Together they ensured I had the full ‘Texas Experience’, from authentic barbecue, to cowboy boot shopping, to everything in between.

The new generations programme was exactly what I was looking for as a post-grad.

Without the help of Rotary and this programme, I would not have as many opportunities opening up for me as I do today – more
