Why did you choose to study in the UK?


It was an opportunity brought to me by Michigan State University’s athletic program. It was completely paid for and I do aspire to travel as much as I possibly can. It seemed like an amazing experience to study at a great university in what seemed like a very cozy college town.


Why did you choose Northumbria University, Newcastle, and what did you know about us before you applied? 


I did not know anything until the information session in my university. I learned that it was a top business university which is my major and that definitely peaked my interest.

What do you most like about Newcastle, and how do you find the city?


I liked how you could walk everywhere in Newcastle and just the atmosphere of it. Even though it was summer and a lot of the students were gone, there was still a buzz in the air and I can’t even imagine how it gets during the school year. I also loved all of the history that was in Newcastle. I felt like the city of Newcastle was very cozy and I like small, tight knit communities like that.


How do you feel you have changed as a person since being at Northumbria University, Newcastle (e.g. confidence)?


I feel like I have grown as a person, travelling on my own. I am confident about visiting new places and exploring. It has opened my eyes to how much there is in the world and made me want to travel that much more. I hope that more students are able to experience what I have experienced and grow as I have.
