Memories of being a student in Ebe...
Feeling so welcomed by the people in Ebe. It was so nice for me to have families (not just students) and also students around me. I also remember how easy it was to settle in at Ebe, people did not ask too many nosy questions whether I am Christian or not And if they did ask me about this, they just accepted me as I was in that time of my life.
Studying in the UK was a life changing experience for me - culture, language, how the university approaches their students both in terms of studies and also other areas.
I started attending a church (Ebe) for the first time in my life simply because I WANTED to go every Sunday, not because my parents would tell me I have to. And I met such nice people, with many of them I still keep in touch today.
I think of Bristol and Ebe quite often. Home away from home.
Advice to new students?
It’s good to realize why you came to uni/Bristol, what are your wishes and hopes, and create your new life around that.
Now I work for a company that runs 7 ho(s)tels - 6 in the Czech Republic, one in Ghana.
My job is quite versatile and I enjoy that.
Also my husband and I are getting ready for our first baby around Christmas time
