Interview with Nikka

About Nikka study abroad project

What do you want to study and why?

I am an agribusiness economics student. What I like about my study field is that it covers a vast area of study. We studied agriculture, economics, accounting, and management. I learned a lot from my study field.

Where are you from and where do you want to go?

I am from Zamboanga City in the Philippines. It is called Asia’s Latin City because our main dialect is Chavacano which comprises 60% Spanish and 40% native words. Basically, I grew up with Spanish influences and this what I love most about my country – its diversity and of course the food and the people! I want to study in the USA because it has everything that I’m looking for not to mention what other people has said, that the USA is where your dreams come true!

Tell us more about you

what do you enjoy doing when you have spare time?

I love reading books and listening to music. I also play Sims 3 most of the time. When I’m outside, I love to people-watch. Right now I’m into journaling and crafting.

Is there a personality trait about you that you are proud of?

Optimism is the trait that I am especially proud of because this is a classic trait of Filipinos. Living in this world right now, being optimistic is a very difficult thing to do.

A message for the higher education institutions

If there is anything you’d like to say to Universities who will see your profile?

I am a knowledge and experience seeker so being able to study abroad is like killing two birds with one stone. I really want to study abroad but I do have financial constraints.

If you can go abroad with a friend?

I would like to go with my best friend because I wanted to share this experience with her.
