Zahra Ali: The opportunity to join a world top 100 university

I am fortunate to come from a family of doctors, writers and teachers, so it was already ingrained in us how important getting an education was. If there is one thing to describe my experience at Monash, it would be inspirational. Monash motivated me to explore my passion and be who I truly want to be.
