Kymbat Murzasheva

Graduate Diploma in Sales and Marketing



Kymbat Murzasheva spoke about the role her mother played in her success and urged fellow graduates to remember the support their parents had given them, at our recent graduation ceremony.

Kym spoke on behalf of OPAIC graduates at the ceremony where she received her Graduate Diploma in Sales and Marketing.

Kym said her mum was a single parent, yet she never felt anything was missing in her family.

“I felt all the love, all the support, all the attention and I wouldn’t be here today if not for her.”

Her mother was also doctor and saved lives and helped people every day. She always gave Kym the opportunity to do what was best for her. She encouraged her to work and live overseas and see the world.

Kym decided to come to OPAIC and make her dream to study abroad come true, because that’s what her mum had wanted.

“I will always be grateful for what this strong woman has done for me.”

Kym urged everyone present to remember the support their parents had given them that allowed them to make it this far.

The OPAIC journey hadn’t been easy but everyone present had succeeded because they were here today.

They had everything they needed to stand out from the crowd and achieve their goals. Their OPAIC qualifications were just the starting point in their careers, said Kym.

“In five years some of you might change the world.”

She asked them to visualise themselves as they wanted their life to be and do whatever it took to achieve that.
