Aya is from Japan, studying a Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science at Griffith University.

Inspired by her father who is a doctor, Aya’s dream is to become a medical laboratory scientist and have a career where she helps doctors. Watch her video below to find out more.

Aya’s favourite thing about studying at Griffith is the facilities; the real lab equipment and the experienced teachers and professors that are always available to help you. Aya has a casual job while she studies, which allows her to have a bit more experience in the lab.

She also loves the friendly and welcoming community at Griffith.

‘As an international student, I love the wide variety of cultures, languages and ethnic backgrounds present across the campus. The University supports international students through dedicated advisors, events and activities. I love studying at Griffith’, she says.
