I am Clara Zhou, studied at Mas Camarena school and I am currently studying at University of Manchester. Being here at uni is amazing, not only have I met a lot of new friends from all over the world, which has opened my mind, but also wonderful Chinese and Spanish people ,which is helping me to improve and keep speaking these 2 languages. The best things about studying at Manchester are the city itself because it is focused on students, the lovely people and the fact that you never get bored, because of the amount of activities to do, such as volunteering. Also, what really captivates me about being at this university is the hundreds of societies where you can join and share the same passion as other students. At first, I was nervous and shy, but when I started to meet new people with the same interests as me, it felt like home. Obviously, I miss Spain a lot, because of the food, my friends, my family and the weather. However, I am having the best time in Manchester,I am studying what I love, I am learning to take care of myself ,to be more independent and to manage my time efficiently.The experience that I am living is fascinating and I would recommend it to everybody. Finally, I am very grateful for everything that my parents and teachers have taught me, because I’ve never thought that it would be so useful.
