International Student Committee President Sofia González Torres said international students were not alone here.

“Pasar Malam is a celebration of multiculturalism on campus that brings the Curtin community together with the wider community. It brings friendship and we have a strong international student community here at Curtin where Pasar Malam acknowledges and reinforces that.”
