Interview with Reuben

About Reuben study abroad project

What do you want to study and why?

Business Administration. I never really liked the field at first until I learned the importance, use, influence, and power of money. My country has the potential of a thousand mustard seeds. A good education and adequate exposure could just be what my people need to get them from developing country to developed country. After all one man can change the world right?

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

I’m from Zambia, a landlocked nation in the southern part of Africa. I love how friendly the people of my country are, we often go out of our way to help. In my nation, I’m looking for opportunities to set up a business(es) that could reduce as much as possible the unemployment rates while also making a platform for more people to better their lives. I’d most definitely love to study in China, it’s a fast-growing economy and trade and business has never had a better place to be studied.

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

A message for the higher education institutions

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

I’m not fond of speaking of myself in fear of coming out as self-absorbed. Nonetheless, I believe I have great potential, I’m a great conversationalist and work great with people, I love to bring out the full potential in people and live to make a difference before my time is up. I’m the only child of a single woman on a sad salary and a full scholarship is most likely the only way I’d be able to get a decent opportunity. I’d highly appreciate the consideration

If you can go abroad with a friend?

My brother Micheal, we met back in grade school and went from enemies to friends to brothers in an instant. Micheal is a born leader, loyal to his own and one of the most driven people I know. His philosophy of life is incredible and more so his generosity. Micheal has had his fair share of turmoil from living in a broken home to nearly not being able to afford college (he wouldn’t without a government bursary). Aside from all this he stays kind and genuine and pursues his passion for Pharmacy. I love Micheal he’s the first person that came to mind when I read this question

About DANIEL study abroad project

What do you want to study and why? 

I want to study mechatronic engineering. I think its awesome how we can make mechanic systems work through electronics, making our lives even easier. Nevertheless, my country, Bolivia, needs more engineers to work for industries and that way help the economic development of the country.

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

I’m from Bolivia which is a third world country. I would like to study in Europe. What I like the most about my country is the people. There are a lot of determined people who want a better life, unfortunately, the government or national institutions don’t offer such opportunities, unless you have the money. From Europe, I would like to see their technological development and bring those new developments to my country.

What do you want to study and why?

I want to be a lawyer, and the main reason why is to be able to find justice for people that don’t have the opportunity.

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

I’m from Chile and I would like to the UK. I love my country because it is little and it has everything near to you, the beach, the countryside, the desert and the forest can be found near you. And I’d like to live the connectivity of a big city and also get to know historical places, such as the Buckingham Palace, the Big Ben, among others.

Interview with Rodrigo

About Rodrigo study abroad project

What do you want to study and why?

I study psychology. I’ve wanted to become a psychologist since I myself started seeing one. I find the job really fascinating and I believe that the understanding of human behavior is a really good way to understand people in general. Moreover, I want to be able to help people in the future, so that was also one of my motivations to study psychology.

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

I’m from Portugal, more specifically from the Azores. Yes, I live in the middle of the ocean, on an island. I like the fact that it’s a very calm place to live in and that there’s a lot of nice people here. I would love to study abroad, in Italy, because I’m fascinated by Italian cuisine and the Italian culture in general. I absolutely love the Italian language, I’ve studied it for around 3 years now and I’ve really fallen in love with it, has become my favorite language. I want to improve my Italian and being able to mix that with studying psychology would be a dream come true for me.

One thing I’m very proud of is that I’m a very hardworking person. I always try to do my best and give it my all when I’m working on a project, and studying abroad would be no different.

 

A message for the higher education institutions

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

I’m just a simple person who is looking for an academic experience abroad. All I want is to be able to discover a different place, be immersed in a totally different culture, study my passion and, hopefully, make lots of friends while I’m studying! One of my dreams is to be able to do that.

If you can go abroad with a friend?

I would love to be able to go abroad with one of my best friends. I actually haven’t thought about anyone in specific, since I’ve never discussed this with anybody, besides my boyfriend and parents. I wouldn’t mind going and enjoying the experience all by myself. It would be no problem at all; I’m sure I’d make lots of friends and get to know a lot of people abroad.
