What do you look forward to the most about studying in the US and at your university in particular?
I look forward to the possibility to look into what I am the most interested in: Economics!
What is the best memory or experience you have had during your years as a CCC member?
My time working with my Writing Mentor, Sophie, on my application essays. She was really helpful!
What has being part of the CCC meant for you? How has it helped you?
It has helped me by guiding me through every stage of the application process. It provided me with resources to do my research on which universities to apply to, which criteria to use to select them, how to obtain critical documents for my visa, standardized testing preparation, etc. It has also allowed me to be part of a community of like-minded students.
What would you say to the students who are going to start being part of the CCC next year?
To make use of all resources available! CCC is a great group, and the team is always there to help you.
