Md Sarwar Kamal
31:08
I am Kamal, PhD candidate from the University of Technology Sydney. I was a severe mental pressure when I was in my first year. Then I changed my supervisor, who is Local citizen (Australian). I find him a superman. He made my journey smooth with proper learning and research practise. Now I am about to land my PhD mid of the next year. So, I believe, a good supervisor is a critical part of the PhD study.

Anggelia Essi Christian

one of my challenges is: sometimes I don't want others know that I am vulnerable
Millicent Crowe
02:06:59
Challenge - I am facing supervisor redundancy … but have reached out and have good support network helping me navigate my way through options
Macey Barratt
02:07:00
I have tried to make a weekly plan as I am someone who loves organisation, but I find it difficult to keep to a plan when I have classes and seminars that are sporadic or at different times each week.

02:07:11
surpervisors are often busy persons
Millicent Crowe
02:08:55
Other strategies - maybe not a strategy, and more broader to life and wellbeing in general but have come across the podcast by Dr Laurie called The Happiness Lab - she runs a course at Yale university of science of wellbeing on coursera - yet to try it, but listening to a couple of her podcasts has been useful in shifting my mindset and incorporating small habits (like talking more to strangers!)
Cassily Charles
02:09:21
Brene Brown
Anggelia Essi Christian
02:10:02
