Why did you choose to study in Ireland?

Apart from the obvious benefit of Ireland being a very friendly and safe place, I chose Ireland because it is one of the few countries that offer a one year work experience after medical school. Also, it is not a very big country and that makes it easier to become familiar with it.

What has been your favourite part of studying abroad?

The education system, I believe, is the best part because the quality of education is very high and convenient. The process of learning makes it easy for one to settle in.

What did you love about living in Ireland?

It was easy for me to explore it because of its size and the cultural diversity in Ireland makes one feel welcomed.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I enjoy going to the cabbage patch (the cage), where I play soccer with a large group of friends. Occasionally, I go to the cinema to watch movies with my friends.

What is your favourite food?

Duck Chinese style fried rice with a glass of orange juice.

What is your fondest memory of DIFC?

Visiting Cork with my classmates, the bus ride to Cork was the highlight of the trip because of the enthusiasm everyone expressed.
