Luna Zhou, Delsk, Winter Vacation 2018
What do you study and where did you go on your PACE International activity?
Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) with Bachelor of Laws – Beijing, China
What was your role or project at your host organisation?
My main role at my host organisation was to assist the Human Resources Department in their recruitment and training processes. I helped to conduct interviews and use psychology to help assess suitable applicants for job roles. I, alongside other PACE students also designed, delivered and evaluated a new cross-cultural training program for current employees.
What attracted you to the PACE International program?
Living in an increasingly globalised world, I wanted to learn more about cross-cultural issues and develop the ability to work with people of diverse cultures. Being an Australian student of Chinese descent, the PACE International Program was of great interest to me because it allowed me to immerse myself into the lifestyle, history and culture of China. Furthermore, it also allowed me to utilise the skills I acquired throughout my University studies to help solve real-world social issues.
What advice would you give a student who is thinking of applying for a PACE International activity?
Don’t be afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone. Undertaking PACE International was one of the most rewarding, eye-opening and well-organised programs I have done during my University life and I would definitely recommend it to all students who are looking to expand their network and gain more practical experience.
What was the best part of your PACE International experience?
Aside from learning Mandarin, tasting exotic Chinese food and exploring Beijing’s famous World Heritage Sites, the best part of PACE International was the opportunity to work alongside a supportive and open-minded Host Organisation. They provided us with an global perspective on issues such as cross-cultural competency whilst also welcoming our innovative ideas on resolving social challenges that commonly occur in today’s society.
