At Texthelp it’s our mission to help unlock everyone's full potential through technology. We love to hear from people who know and use EdTech as part of their daily lives. We invited Shelly Zheng, a student from Western Sydney University to join our podcast.
Shelly shares her experiences of student life and accessing the tools and support she needs to complete her studies. Through this podcast Shelly hopes to inspire others who may be wary of attending university, she offers some tips and advice that could be of help too. We hope to produce more resources with Shelly later this year, so keep an eye out for that!
