www.ilsc.com – Alessia Bottini came to Australia in 2014 to improve her English. She is now studying a Diploma of International Business at ILSC’s Business College with the dream of one day opening a small Italian café using the business skills she’s gained through her studies. Sydney is now her home away from home and this is her ILSC story.
My Name is Alessia Bottini. I’m from Italy. I have been in Australia for three years. I first came to ILSC in 2014 and I started in elementary English communication. I didn’t know English, I was very nervous. Now I’m studying in a Diploma of International Business. In December of 2014 I found out I had a cancer, and ILSC was a wonderful support for me. I like Sydney because it’s very multicultural. I also like it because of the café culture, the outdoor life, and the opportunity. ILSC has helped me improve my English, build my confidence and given me life skills. Thanks to ILSC I can live and work in Sydney. I would like to finish my diploma first, and after that I would like to open a small Italian café. I want to use the skills from my diploma to run my business. When I first came to Sydney, I didn’t know anybody, I didn’t speak English. Now I know a lot of friends, and Sydney is my home away from home.
