What University life taught me about myself...

I've just finished my 3rd year in Biological Sciences. I remember my first day. As an international student, it was very overwhelming in the beginning. Everything was new and very different. All I wanted was to try lots of new and exciting things. Now, as a 3rd Year on the brink of graduation, I've realised that everything I've done has been a
learning opportunity and I gained
something from every experience.
