Interview with Ivana

About Ivana Sweetzell study abroad project

What do you want to study and why?

My current course is Technology Communication Management but I would really want to learn a lot about fashion designing.  I want to study fashion designing since I want to build my own clothing line in the future. 😊 I want to study abroad because there are so many things that I want to learn outside our country. I also want to improve my study field with the help of studying abroad.

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

I came from the Philippines, specifically, in the Northern Mindanao part of it. The thing that I like most in our country is the hospitability, and friendliness our the Filipinos. We have this trait that even if we have problems, we still smile and make other people laugh no matter what. It is more fun in the Philippines they say. I am looking for a country that will provide a higher standard of education so that I can enhance my ability to speak and communicate well in the English language. Also, I want to enhance the business strategies that I learned during my stay in my former school. I hope that this country will help me a lot.

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 hardworking kind of student. I always pass my assignments or tasks on time because I believe that early bird catches the worm. If you pass early, you’ll be free from stress and you will not be loaded with other tasks. I also can work under pressure. I am looking forward to your invitation!

If you can go abroad with a friend?

I would choose my friend named Sarah Mae Flores because she also wanted to study abroad and travel to different places. She really loves to explore things and become part of a new community. She is also a hard worker and she is my study buddy here in the Philippines. She also can cope up with things easily so I think she would be a great help.
