Our story is your story.
We are just like you.

We built Open Borders so you can create experiences that inspire your future. Your Journey. Your potential.

Hello!

My name is Ruggero Paternò, and I co-founded Open Borders. It’s great to meet you!

After studying in Australia I fell in love with the country and decided to experience everything it has to offer. It’s full of opportunities, and that’s probably why you’re here!

For over two years, I’ve helped international students to come to Australia. We created this platform so you can have the tools to gain control over your experience. Think of it as a pen that you can now use to write your own story – we cannot wait to see you through this journey!

Hey there!

If we’re just meeting for the first time, my name is Joselle Reyes, and I co-founded Open Borders.

In 2015, I made a life-changing decision of studying in Australia, and if you’re here, you’re probably thinking of doing the same thing!

After years of working as an accountant in this industry, I’ve seen and experienced how overwhelming it can be when you feel like you don’t know what to do. That’s why our team created this platform – to empower and enable students like you – we’re here to serve you. We can’t wait for you to try it!
