I took a huge step out of my comfort zone and moved to the United Kingdom. I have been accepted at the University for the Creative Arts which is located in Canterbury, a district of Kent in South East England.
It feels like I have made the right choice. The University allows you to do the things you really love and explore your creative talents. Being a part of this creative and inspiring environment is very unique and motivating. I have already learned so much over the past four weeks. It feels amazing thinking of how much more I will learn and grow by the time I graduate as an architect (class of 2013).
Also, Canterbury is a lovely historic city. It’s skyline is dominated by a magnificent cathedral which is the oldest in England. Canterbury has a wide range of welcoming pubs and lovely restaurants. There is a great vibe every time I walk through the town.
So far I am having a great experience and I also perfectly fit into my new environment.
Below I have attached pictures I took of 5 highlights of the past 5 weeks:
