Podcast Reviews

5 out of 5

Gauthier Fouques

"Thanks for the podcast Trevor – you’re such a great storyteller! I really appreciate your words. Thank you for that experience."

Annie Yang.

Such a huge honour to be invited to a podcast, “Tomorrow Is Mine”, to share my story of why I chose Gold Coast & Griffith university as my study destination. You are such a great host! I feel so comfortable, feel like I had chitchat with my friends. Thanks again for having me, and for you an excellent editing job!! 

Wei Luo

"I came across your podcast and immediately became a huge fan of your channel and content! Really digging the amazing stories delivered and collaborated with students and host, presenting a wide range of mixed perspectives."

Naymah Tarik

I could not be happier than sharing my experiences and thoughts about Gold Coast as a Griffith university student class of 2020. Thank you so much, Trevor Jackson, for having me as a guest on your amazing podcast series 'Tomorrow is Mine'

Luutu Henry

"I just listened to the episode featuring Rohan Das and it reinvigorated my drive to reach out to people back home. East Africa is so proud of you Rohan!"

iTunes

 "Great storytelling! Really interesting insights and expertly interviewed. Extend your “circle of care” and give it a listen"

iTunes

"Fascinating! I loved hearing about how these students ended up on the Gold Coast and how their experiences have shaped them."

Kyron Armour

"This series is amazing.  I know both the people featured so far and yet I had no idea of their stories.  Both were captivating for different reasons, and both resonated with our family on a personal level.  It is interesting to have your perceptions of a situation challenged by others lived experiences.  I cannot wait for the next podcast!"

05/06/2020
Rohan Rafael Das

“Joseph Prospere you are truly an inspiration to so many people. If you can spare the time make sure you listen to this amazing podcast. So Good!"

Michael Adams

“This. Is. Awesome.”

"Trevor Jackson is a master storyteller."

Jeff Norman

“Joseph Prospere is a remarkable young man with a great story. Looking forward to the next episode.”

Simon Howell

“Bren Domingo is a legend.”

Craig Senior, Careers Coach

Having a podcast series that is local to the Gold Coast and showcasing the stories of its people and their achievements is incredible. Thank you for making this happen. I wish to be the podcast guest I needed to listen to 10 years ago.

Vinaya Wate

I had heard about the podcast ‘Tomorrow is Mine’ where students from the Gold Coast share their stories and I eagerly wanted to be a part of it. Initially I didn’t think my story would make a difference, but a mother of 8 Reshma Pade proved me wrong, as her daughter was extremely keen and excited about my journey. I was touched when the mother said, “I wish to see my daughter Maithili at your place” I was blown away by those words, realising that I have at least contributed towards Maithili’s life to set her goals high. And this makes me proud of my journey and experiences. Thank you Study Gold Coast and Trevor Jackson for giving me such a mesmerising and contributing opportunity.

Martin Ebata

It’s really motivating to hear these stories. I think you’re going to inspire a lot of students through this podcast, particularly now during the pandemic when there’s so much uncertainty in the world.

Kate Morgan, Eggy

Our startup isn’t a billion dollar company (yet), but what we can give is our experience and our story so far. Even if it helps one other nufty out there trying to cut through the noise to find out what it takes to bring together the right people to build a product that solves a problem we’d be stoked with that. It’s a story with laughs and low points beautifully steered by Trevor Jackson.

Michael Lobb

Mannu Kala is an inspiration! Really great to listen to this podcast.

iTunes

Fascinating! I loved hearing about how these students ended up on the Gold Coast and how their experiences have shaped them.
