Hello, my name is Audrey
! I got the opportunity to attend the Reach Cambridge residential study program this summer, and I don’t think words are enough to express how excited I am for what will be a very new experience in my life. I will be joining in Program 1, and for the two weeks I will be taking Engineering
. It has become my dream
to pursue a degree, and later on a career
, in this field.
Scholarship student Audrey
Upon finding out about Reach Cambridge, I knew that this program was exactly what I needed to help me and give me a boost towards my goal.
I was aware that in order to be good at engineering, I would need to have a good foundation. I believe that Reach Cambridge can help me establish the solid foundation
I need and can give me an idea of what engineering is like at university level
so I can prepare myself. Engineering is a subject that calls for theoretical knowledge, but also has a strong emphasis on the practical aspect of it. Based on what I saw in Reach Cambridge’s Instagram
page, I think that Reach provides a good balance between the theory and the more practical, hands-on work
Audrey’s excited to go punting!
aspect of Reach Cambridge is also very interesting to me. I live 11,800 kilometers away from the UK, which means that I will be studying in a very new, very foreign environment. In the future I wish to study abroad
for university, and my time at Reach will definitely help me gain the independence, confidence, and courage
I need. Every year students from different countries gather in Reach Cambridge. I believe that studying with an international cohort would be beneficial as it allows me to be more socially aware and build empathy
. It allows me to gain confidence to talk to new people and connect with them, learn more about their backgrounds and culture that they grew up in.
Cambridge is also a very beautiful city.
I believe that Reach Cambridge can help me establish the solid foundation I need.
There will be new sights for me to see, and I can’t wait to study in such a picturesque environment. I am looking forward to strolling around the city with the friends I will be making, taking pictures in front of the buildings and rivers, go punting, and enjoy this city I’ve never been to before.
I am beyond grateful for this opportunity, and I can’t wait to embark on this learning journey together with Reach Cambridge!
