I left India behind in April 2008 and came to Australia, which I was told was the land of opportunity, says Gupta. “And it’s true. Australia does reward you if you are willing to work hard.”
After saying home for a few months, Gupta enrolled for an advanced diploma for conveyancing from Melbourne Polytechnic and did an internship with a lawyer for a year before she started her own business. “There is no shortcut to success. Despite being qualified from Indian universities, I had to start from the beginning again. Mutual Conveyancing is one of the best things that could have happened to me. My hard work has paid off.”
Gupta says happy clients are what keep her motivated. “I am now pursuing a Bachelors of Law from Victoria University and can’t wait to complete the degree.”
