On 30 October, Natalia Eugenia Palacio Vasquez was presented the award for ‘International Student of the Year – English Language Training Category’ at
the 2017 Victorian International Education Awards (VIEA), held at the Investment Centre Victoria.
The awards are Victoria’s highest distinctions in international education; award recipients are presented with $10,000. The prestigious Premier’s Award winner
is presented with an additional $10,000. Award recipients also go on to become ambassadors for Study Melbourne.
“This has been the best experience of my life. I have done a lot of things in just one year,” she said. Natalia has achieved a lot, but she credits her teachers at
Impact for helping her acheive her goals and dreams, “I want to say thank you for being amazing teachers but most importantly, incredible human beings who
have made a difference in my life, encouraging me to be a better student.”
