Age: 27

Course studied: Public Relations and Advertisement B.A.


We humans make different life changing decisions day in and out, decisions that set us on adventurous and experiencing part. Coming to study at the European University of Lefke was one of those decisions for me. My arrival here opened my mind to an entirely different perception to life. Being my First time travelling out of my home country, everything was different and challenging in terms of adaptation, culture and even the educational system. To my surprise, I wouldn’t have to deal with these factors alone. Within a short period of time, I realised the university and the environment had become a home away from home for me. This was due to welcoming and accommodating motives of the university and its officials, the comfort in the educational system, the warmth in the people who lived around the university environment.

In due time, I further got an opportunity to work as a student assistant at the University International Affairs Office. Here I got a first hand experience on how the university dedicated its time to create a multicultural environment and student body, daily catering for student requests and needs. Organizing events and activities to ensure students feel more at home within the university and its surrounding. Witnessing all these further inspired the zeal in my major programme of study - Public Relations and Advertisement.

In the faculty level, I also gained first hand communication experience with my professors. Practicing every bit of communication theory learnt at lectures in my daily work and life routines.

I am now graduating from the university with confidence that I have been morally, academically and physically equipped for the next phase of my life. I am going to serve as an ambassador the university in every ramification of my endeavours and promote the knowledge acquired within the walls and surrounds of European University of Lefke.hehhh
