What challenges did you overcome during your time here?
As an international student, English is not my mother tongue. In the first year of my studies I had very seriously difficulty talking to people or sharing my experience in English.
At the time I was scared to use English, I was worried I would say something wrong or I wouldn’t understand what people said back to me in conversation. I was almost ready to quit university.
However, I got lucky and experienced a serious turning point with my university life at the Psychology Society party. I was really impressed by how these people cared about me, even though I couldn’t talk English to them very much.
It made me realise that University of Bradford students care about others so much, it was so nice.
