Memories of Richmond: My Richmond experience was special because I felt like the "Unity in Diversity" initiative was present in all of my work and studies. From the different jobs/internships around London to the diverse cultures integrated into my classes, I felt prepared for future globalization. I can help recent graduates get started in the world of work by telling them what another Richmond Alumni told me: Be Kind. That will be the basis of all I share. Being kind has gotten me through successes and challenges, and I hope to give graduates (and prospective students), based on my experience, hope for a fulfilling career.

Memories of Richmond: My year at Richmond was very exciting in both the learning and the social aspects. The small class size made it easier to make connections, switching from classmates to good friends. I had the opportunity to take very interesting courses, held by some of the best faculty members, I had the chance to learn from until now.
My Richmond experience has granted me the chance to develop skills and competencies such as multitasking, team work and rigor. At the same time, it has encouraged me to grab each and every opportunity, to do more and be more, a mindset that is incredibly valuable in both the workplace and elsewhere, and I am so grateful for that .

Memories of Richmond: For me, the Richmond experience was a great journey. From the beginning in a quiet Richmond suburb, I'd never have imagined where I'd end up. Richmond did more than offer me a first-class education; it offered me the space to grow as an individual, to try new things, meet new and interesting people and create great friendships. It's a place where I was never far from a new opportunity or experience. As an international student, I have valued the opportunity to study in London, a great city with such a rich and diverse environment.

Memories of Richmond: My time at Richmond was essential in leading me to where I am today. The international perspective I gained while living in London and attending Richmond continues to play a role in both my professional and personal life. Richmond provided me the amazing opportunity to learn from professors who were dedicated and passionate about their work and classmates who drew on their own personal narratives, bringing diversity to the classroom each day. Of course, there is no better city to live in than London and I miss everything about it!
