#NZINME – MINI-BLOG CONTEST (BY BARBARA SALAS) 

Hello everyone. My name is Barbara Salas and I’m from Chile. I am currently studying Bachelor of Information Technology at Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS).

While at Hobbiton, Barb says, "I want to get a little bit of New Zealand in me"

My diverse background in Chile: Before coming to New Zealand for further study, I studied Bachelor of Biochemistry at the University of Chile for five years. After graduation, I was further trained in the Police Department and worked as a Detective for seven years.

Now, I’m studying in the IT programme at AIS and I want to become a data scientist in the near future. My diverse background in education and work experience actually supported my further study and helped me to adapt quickly to the new environment.

My new life in NZ: I have found my professors and classmates at AIS to be very supportive. Why did I choose New Zealand? Because it is a wonderful country with nice people and similar weather to Chile. Together with my family, we have traveled to a variety of tourist attractions. To my family, New Zealand or “Aotearoa” is a perfect place to study and share with family and friends.
