Life at Goldsmiths was full of memorable experiences that helped shape me as an individual and professional. Besides the curriculum, I also learnt things about myself, especially that I want to be an entrepreneur one day and then for the rest of my life.

Currently, I work at Hotels.com under Expedia Inc. - the best UK workplace two years running, according to Glassdoor. The ICCE Department equipped me with the business understanding that made me stand out from other candidates throughout my early career. My job combines tech & travel, two of the things I love most, and I’m gaining more skills and experience which will help me when I have my own business.

Goldsmiths is a great community that will help you adapt to life in the big city and make you feel like a true Londoner with time. The diversity and inclusiveness here are second to none, enabling students to see multiple perspectives and broaden their horizons. The tutors’ support and dedication are fantastic, so don’t hesitate to ask for help. It can be an invaluable resource.

To sum up, I believe that some of the most important things I left from Goldsmiths with are to be confident in my thinking and to nourish my creativity. So if you’re reading this unsure of what to do, know that I would do it again.
