I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. I lived there for 19 years before moving to Perth. If anyone suggested studying abroad to me three years ago I would have said no without a doubt. I loved being at home in South Africa with my family, I never wanted to leave the safety net that was my home.
The competition is fierce this year amongst UWA’s Inter-College sporting teams. UniHall is off to a flying start with our teams taking out first and second place titles in a variety of sports.
The season began with the cross-campus run where our runners won 2nd and 3rd place. It was fantastic to see a squad of more than 30 residents take part by either running, walking or cheering on the team.
Shortly after the cricket team braved the heat and took out first place during the weekend competition! Go UniHall!
