"Scotland has witnessed all my wildest adventures..."
I became an international student in Scotland over three years ago, and I honestly can’t imagine living anywhere else!
As I write this, I am on a train on my way up to the Highlands of Scotland. I look through the window and I notice the colour green (and grey of course –for the clouds) all around me, along with the sound of the train engine.
The woods and the hills that I see from the train really remind me of how much I love living here. I write this blog to tell you about some, although not all, of the ways that Scotland has been a wonderful home to me:
1. Meeting Alastair
I started dating my best friend a year ago. Alastair is Scottish and I am Peruvian which makes our relationship a cross-cultural one. We have enjoyed so much sharing each other’s culture, language and families that even though I might be far from my own country, he’s helped me feel more at home.
2. Strathclyde University
Strathclyde University has been a real treat for an international student like myself. They have a really strong support group for all the students, especially internationals. They showed a huge support when my grandma was unwell and I had to fly to Peru in the middle of my exams.
