Hi, my name is Katerina, I’m a second-year journalism student at City University, London. Originally from Latvia, I moved to the UK at the age of 17 and did my A-Levels here. Being an international student in London can be challenging in many ways, especially after Brexit. Issues we face can be very different: from a cultural shock and language problems to financial difficulties and ridiculous student housing. I would like to represent international students around the UK, allowing their voices to be heard. Although, I don’t limit myself only to international students. As students’ opinions are massively unreported, I hope to raise the society’s awareness of our point of view. I believe future is in our hands and together we can change it for better.
