Rida wants to study abroad. HigherEdMe interviews a lot of students in the world about their motivation to go abroad to get a degree. Will you guess where Rida is coming from by reading her answers?

What do you want to study and why? What makes you like your study field?

I want to study the MBA Program. As I am also currently pursuing BBA Hons. I love this field as it broadens the concept of a person. It not only helps in business and corporate world, but also helps in everyday life.

Where are you from and where do you want to go? What do you like in your home country? What are you looking for in the country where you will study?

I am from XXX. And I wish to go abroad, not specified but the preference is European countries. I love my food and culture as it is a blend of different cultures in XXX.

I wish to go and study abroad because it makes a person to pave paths for himself/herself, urges to work on his own. Also it allows to make international corporate networks. Besides this, it creates a sense of self confidence and independence.

What about your hobbies and what do you enjoy doing when you have spare time?

I love travelling. It’s a kind of passion for me.

Also I love to study the great success stories and case studies of the business world. It motivates me and urges me to become one of them.

Is there a personality trait about you that you are proud of? What is it and why?

Empathy. I understand the perspective of the other person. And I think this makes me a problem-solver.

If there is anything you’d like to say to Universities who will see your profile or if you want to add something, feel free to do it.

Students from third-world countries are equally talented and motivated. They just need to be appreciated and given a chance. They’ll become the future ‘Mark Zuckerberg’ and ‘Bill Gates’

If you can go abroad with a friend, which one and why?

My friend YYYY, she is currently persuing Computer Science. But wishes to do MBA in future, as it will prove helpful to her career.

I too want to go with her as it will help me to become more confident and a true companion can also bring the best out of a person.
