I moved to Aus­tralia from India four years ago. I spent two years in Bris­bane and then I moved to Cairns. I’ve been here for two years com­plet­ing my Masters of Mar­ket­ing at James Cook Univer­sity. I learnt English watch­ing cricket back in India. Cairns is pretty wel­com­ing and the mind­set of ev­ery­one is very mul­ti­cul­tural so you can fit in eas­ily. I play cricket for Rovers which I en­joy and I was in the Cairns Post once when I was pho­tographed play­ing cricket. Fish­ing is not re­ally an in­ter­est of mine but I love walks on the Es­planade and I love the Green Is­land reef. I have been jet­ski­ing and para­sail­ing. I like the ad­ven­ture ac­tiv­i­ties here. You have to do that to try and be an Aus­tralian.
