Why study here?

Maria Isabel De Souza Novo
Yo nací en Argentina, crecí en México e pase mi adolescencia en Brasil y como consecuencia tuve la oportunidad en el transcurrir de mi vida de tener contacto con diversos idiomas y culturas. Esta experiencia y mi pasión por Historia, comunicaciones y Geografía son lo que me motivo a estudiar Relaciones Internacionales en la universidad. Desde que era chica mi sueño era hacer la universidad fuera y para mi la decisión siempre estuvó entre Reino Unido o Estados Unidos por el cariño que le tengo al idioma inglés pero la decisión fue tomada después que visite Londres por la primera vez porque me enamoré de la ciudad y sabia que quería estar lo mas cerca de ella posible sin perder la oportunidad de estudiar en un campus universitario. Al escoger la Universidad de Essex tengo lo mejor de ambos mundos porque no solo estoy cerca de Londres como también tengo la oportunidad de estudiar en una universidad con un esplendido campus y una vida estudiantil internacional, algo que también era de extrema importancia para mi. Finalmente, al escoger estudiar Relaciones Internacionales tuve la oportunidad de estudiar asignaturas que me inspiran con profesores de todas las partes del mundo, pero esto diploma también me da la oportunidad de buscar carreras que son mas relacionadas al mundo de las comunicaciones que el de la política como mi actual posición como asistente para marketing internacional y reclutamiento estudiantil para Latino América en la Universidad de Essex.
