Coming to Nagoya University and living alone for the first time ever has been the biggest challenge for me. Yes, I’m talking about cooking, cleaning, laundry, paying the bills and all the rest. However, it’s because of the amazingly supportive people around me that I was able to get accustomed to university life.
The work here in Nagoya University is really tough, but of course it is fascinating too. I have always dreamt of studying what I love everyday and that is exactly what I get here. The professors are really nice and they teach us how to look around the world in a new perspective.
Apart from the academics, an important part of university life is meeting new people. I am part of a group called the International Football Club, where international students and Japanese students meet up weekly and play football (soccer). I always have a great time and it is a great for physical relaxation, which is necessary when you have worked hard all week.
After graduation, I plan on continuing my studies into physics. I want to be a researcher in the field of theoretical physics and Nagoya University offers me the opportunity to work in the amazing internationally recognized labs from our 3rd year and onwards. I, for one, cannot wait!
