Kathrin Fischer: Exploring Western Australia

by Wendy Jeffcoat Crider | Sep 25, 2013

My name is Kathrin Fischer. I am a senior, and I am double-majoring in Politics and Justice Studies and Sociology with a minor in Business Administration.

Currently, I am studying at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. School is quite different here, but I adapted to the changes. I am taking only business classes in Australia to finish the requirements of my Business Administration minor.

I have quite a busy schedule - I am working part-time as a waitress, school is quite demanding and I also volunteer for an environmental organization "Conservation Volunteers." Even though I am pretty busy, I make time to meet and socialize with people from all over the world. Western Australia has a very diverse population - I love it.

I also take time out to explore Western Australia. The Australian bush and the landscape are incredible! I have been on a couple of day trips and two 3-day trips so far. I will also go on a 10-day trip starting next weekend. Honestly, I think I fell in love with Australia, and I know for sure that I will come back to this amazing country after my study abroad experience. Even though it is very expensive, I love it. I have the time of my life here, and I am so happy that I decided to study in WA.
