Interview with Marsix

About Marsix study abroad project

What do you like in your study field? Have you an ideal job in mind?

At the moment I am in the last year of secondary school, and I really like the field of international relations since it is something that I do very well, it is a career that needs a lot of dedication and commitment. I read a lot and I know how to treat and lead people, my ideal job would be in an embassy

Where are you from and Where do you want go?

I am from Colombia and what I would most recommend would be to go on a tour of the Caribbean coast of our country, where you can find different landscapes, exotic food and enjoy quiet beaches, visit monuments, visit the jungle of the Amazon as it is a unique place to see, where you can breathe the purest air in the world.

Caribbean coast

I am open to travel to any part of the world, because one of my dreams is to know even the remotest parts of the planet, so any place that is chosen for me is perfect. I travelled in 2016 to Canada in a student exchange, to Drumheller, Alberta. I was studying for 1 month in Drumheller Valley Secondary School and living in student residence

What are you hobbies, or any side activity you have?

My hobbies are reading and writing, I really enjoy this practice because it is something that helps me to develop better and express my ideas better

What is the one thing that makes you feel the most proud?

My trip to Canada, my ability to learn a language quickly, the responsibility with which I assume the challenges that I face and my leadership skills.

What do you like the most in your current High School

What I like most about my institution are the different methodologies we adopt to improve teaching, since we have agreements with the University of Valladolid in Spain, and we have several programs that allow us to stimulate our critical thinking.

What would you say to an university recruiter to pick you?

I would tell him to choose me, because, without a doubt, he is taking an exceptional person, trained to face any challenge, no matter how difficult it is.

If you are a recruiter, you can find Marix’s study abroad project on higheredme.co

If you can go abroad with a friend?

Sebastián, Because I consider that we are a great team, when we work together we stand out in front of other people and consider that, like me, he is someone fully capable of taking on any challenge.

About Adrianna study abroad project

What do you like in your study field? Have you an ideal job in mind?

I’m currently in the last year of my Bachelor’s degree, Linguistics for business. It’s a wonderful mix of management, languages and practical knowledge, which comes handy when you are a young person just starting your career. Thanks to a wide range of subjects and lessons, conducted by specialists from different backgrounds, I had a chance to discover which path I want to take from now. My dream is to become a manager and a leader – a person who uplifts others and incorporates the values of global citizenship into the business.

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

I was born and raised in one of the biggest cities in Poland, Łódź. Although the name might look scary, I assure you that the city itself is worth every bit of effort that you put into pronouncing its name. Still, if I had to pick one thing it would be murals. It’s been nearly ten years now since the appearance of first installations and now there are plenty of paintings scattered through the whole city, made by talented people from all around the world. There is even a guided tour organised by our city, be sure to check it out if you ever come around!
I have traveled a lot in the past and I plan to visit even more places in the future. It was mostly through Europe and North Africa, only this summer I had an amazing opportunity to volunteer at a project for children in Greece. But a place that I truly want to visit is the Scandinavia. Honestly, I’m so in love with the countries located there – their culture, people and of course nature. No matter what the future brings I plan to spend there at least one summer, to wholly experience the place.

Adrianna speaks 3 languages Polish, English, and French. She already has been contacted by 3 institutions on HigherEdMe and has accepted to continue further with one them. All the team wishes her good luck.

If you are a University, you can contact her trough HigherEdMe here: Adrianna’s profile

What are your hobbies, or any side activity you have?

I spent most of my free time doing the projects with students organizations that I’m part of – AIESEC and Enactus. Especially the second one proved pretty absorbing, with our project aimed at autistic children and their families. It gave me a lot of responsibilities, but also plenty of new opportunities. I’ve been a radio speaker, hold workshops in primary school, do some 3D modeling and graphic design – I guess that once the job needs to be done, it’s just best to do it yourself!

What is the one thing that makes you feel the proudest?

I guess it would be my openness, which shows in most things that I do. I just love participating in workshops, gaining new skills and learning, especially from other people. I’m very open to other perspectives, seeing the diversity as something that can bring us all a lot of good things. Then, I’m also open to challenges, as long as they are conducted according to “fair play” rules.

What do you like the most in your current University and what would you say to a university recruiter to pick you?

I really like the practical approach, which my university adopted when it comes to my studies. Meeting actual professionals, learning skills that are required by companies, having an obligatory internship.
I’m a solution-oriented, motivated person seeking the best path to achieve my goals. I’m positive that both during my studies and after their end, the university will be proud to name me one of their students and later graduates.

If you can go abroad with a friend?

Weronika, We’ve been friends for nearly half of my life, starting as pretty awkward kids and slowly becoming young women, that we are today. There is no doubt that we both shaped each other, helping one another during hard times and laughing over silly things. I’d be more than happy to have her support during another important event in my life – choosing a Master and then getting the diploma is definitely a big thing after all!

From South Africa to Europe. Meet Nombuso

Interview with Nombuso

About Nombuso study abroad project

What do you want to study and why?

I want to study a Bachelor of Social Sciences in Political sciences and law. I love having a global perspective about the world we live in and find means of developing what’s already there to something great.
I enjoy giving back and helping people around me who cannot afford the services that they need and so I am going to give those people hope and a possibility.

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

I am from South Africa, Durban.
I love our ubuntu principal and how despite one having a bad day, we find someone or something that will inspire and motivate us. Even in poverty, we can still be happy with the little that we get and how we support one another.
I want to go to Europe, I am looking for development, enrichment, knowledge and I want to be a story for the youth of South Africa. By showing them that nothing is impossible for as long as you have a dream and that if you find your purpose, the sky is the limit.
A lot of people instill their fears onto others but never let naysayers get to you. If I can do it despite all the challenges I had to go through, then the next person too can achieve the very same and more if they persevere and are determined for success no matter how long it takes. Because it’s not about how you start but how you finish.

Nombuso is currently working as a English teacher in China to save money for her studies. She was a student at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Political science and legal studies. If you are a University registered on HigherEdMe you cand directly find her here.

University of KwaZulu-Natal

University of KwaZulu-Natal is a university with five campuses in the province of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa

Tell us more about you

What do you enjoy doing when you have spare time?

If I am not out on the streets meeting new people and networking. I love to listen to music, read a book, watch movies and series, read my bible, sleep. I love to shop but only when it’s necessary.
I don’t like to waste money on things I won’t need. I love my own space because I get to hear myself think and always trying to find a way to improve on myself, so that I can be a better person to whoever I meet and communicate with, so that even though the person I meet forgets my name but the words I have shared with them stay with them.

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

I don’t know what to call it but I always find the good in a person, especially people who look down upon themselves. I motivate them by sharing my story and letting them know that my story is no better than the next person. I am proud of the fact I never ket my background determine my life and how I’m going to live. Instead, my background is my motivation, because I know it’s not where I come from, but where I’m going that matters.
Where I am now, I never imagined I would be, but I am content and grabbing every opportunity by its horns.

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 23-year-old female from South Africa.
Being a young African girl is really hard because we are sometimes boxed into what ‘society thinks’ a black girl/boy should be and people see us no better than our backgrounds.
I am one person who never allowed herself to be boxed or labeled. If people labeled me, so they think, it never has affected my goal and I am still reaching for the stars.
I am a person who, when I do something, I don’t do it for recognition. I love being in the background cheering. I am a selfless person who cares about another person well being more than my own.
When growing up, my parents used to always say: “share with the next person”. We weren’t rich but we had all we needed and there was so much love because we value each other and that’s who I am.
I value life, its challenges, failures, and successes. It’s never easy but how you come out of that situation is what matters, either you come out strong or you feel pity for yourself and sulk or you go out there and knock on doors until one opens.
I know that many universities/colleges don’t accept international students going to the third year but only take going to the second year mostly but I have hope and if it means I do the second year that’s alright with me.
In life we have to make sacrifices and tough decisions but if those decisions show a better life and future one takes it even if it means taking a step back a little.
I will not let anything pull me down. Any opportunity given I am using it to the best of my ability.

If you can go abroad with a friend?

Amanda.
We have two different stories and I love this because it brings awareness to others as well that you may have everything but then life has something different planned out for you.
When her mother passed away that’s when everything just tumbled down and when your family pretty much just doesn’t care then who else can you turn too?
Well, I have always been there and at times I would cry and pray God please give me enough money so I can send her to college and be that pillar of strength and be the light in her life that will open her eyes so that she could see the beauty of the world and find her purpose.
I know studying abroad is expensive but there are universities/colleges that have funding so that could be one option. There is always a window/door that will open.
She has been through a lot but I have never left her side. We are sisters and have grown so close that we share almost everything. She always says I wish I was you, look at you and I always tell her it’s all about timing. I didn’t get to where I am in a click of a finger. I had to go through a lot of challenges but I just never gave up. Your time too will come.
We always fantasized about studying or working abroad from childhood and so if an opportunity presented itself I would sure take her along so we can fulfil our dream together in our different study fields.
To have her there and sharing all the good and bad times together would be a dream come true. When the people you thought loved you no longer care one goes to a dark place, but I have always made her believe in herself and know that she’s smart and capable.
I don’t have all the money in the world but she knows if she wants something I got her back and I wouldn’t change that for anybody. At the end of the day, it’s all about how one finishes.
In a race you have people giving up in the middle of the race but even if you come out last you did it, although you may not get any prize for it for you it means something and those are the mindsets and generation we want to have in our world.
Where even though it seems impossible it’s always possible. We all have a story but the end of the story is what’s important.
