How Showkat helps others
After initially struggling with finding a place to live and financial difficulties upon moving to Darwin, Showkat was able to overcome these challenges. Now, she is using her personal experience to assist others in similar situations.
“I’m creating a new Student Club to support international families joining CDU,” says Showkat. The purpose of the group is to offer support and advice to families new to Australia and Darwin. “
Since enrolling at CDU, Showkat has acquired valuable experience in the field of STEM.
“After starting the on-campus study, I got involved with CDU’s IT Code Fair as an ambassador and cooperated at the mock IT Code Fair program,” says Showkat.
“I did some voluntary work with Inspired NT as a member of STEM for Women and attended the STEM for Women Mentorship Program, where I got valuable suggestions from my selected mentor.”
When asked what she had planned for her future, this is what she had to say.
“I’d like to find a job here when I finish my study, but I’m also keen to learn about the working area of social welfare.
