My aspirations in life are all different, but generally learning languages, travelling, meeting new people, dancing, improving myself and learning new things. I’m proud of what I’ve achieved so far. Before I came to England my biggest dream was to be able to speak in English, as my English was very poor, and right now I want to be as fluent in English as I am in Spanish.
Just last week I went to a Latin night for the first time. I was able to improve my bachata and salsa dancing skills there. In my first year I was also really involved in the Bulgarian Society, because I’m Bulgarian, and with them I did a lot of charity work and events on campus. The charity we supported most was the Red Cross in Bulgaria, but also animal charities here in England.
If I could give myself advice a year ago I would tell myself to be a bit more patient, and not expect too much from people. When I look back at the past 2-3 years when I’ve been here at Essex, the times when I’ve felt most disappointed and down are the times that made me realise so many important things in life, which I really appreciate now.
