Inspired by her primary school experience in Aotearoa, Malaysian student Arina returned to this country to study at the University of Otago.

She serves as an ambassador for the University of Otago, YOLO®, and Education New Zealand, with the latter recognising her as a Top Prize Kiwi Ambassador.

Arina uses social media and her website to share her story and engage with thousands of students from around the world.

She has been elected as the OUSA International Students’ Representative for 2020 and hopes to contribute more to building New Zealand-Asia networks through international education.
