Cristina Ocana (Ecuador)
Hi, my name is Cristina and I come from Ecuador. I am currently studying Plant Biotechnology at The University of Queensland. I am currently doing my honours, or bachelor thesis, on how to accelerate the growth of quinoa plants. I have become very passionate about this crop in the past years because it connects me with my own culture. I enjoy exchanging experiences with people from all over the world, and Brisbane is ideal for that given its multiculturalism. I like this city so much that I'm planning to extend my studies as well. If you want to know why, come and take a look yourself!
My favourite things about Brisbane are...
Brisbane offers a balanced lifestyle: it's quiet enough, but also fun. You'll find people from your home country, but also from abroad. You will feel like you're home even when you're away from home.
