This semester has been the most hectic one, by far, ever since I moved here. I am finishing up my third semester at SBCC, which means it’s time to wrap up my college applications for Fall 2019. For you non-americans out there, this basically means that I am switching schools, from a 2-year community college, to a 4-year university. I am still deciding on where I want to transfer, but I have somewhat figured out where in California I want to live (A place much colder than Santa Barbara, wish me luck). In other words, my every day life has transformed tremendously since last semester. I am finishing up my required courses, working as an intern, and doing extra curricular, while at the same time trying to have a social life. In between my papers and essays I’ve been on several trips to San Francisco, attended a wedding in Lake Tahoe (which was sooo beautiful), and had my best friend from home visit me. Overall a hectic, but fun semester!
I have been wanting to write more about my school experiences here, after tons of dm’s and emails from you guys. I figured it would be nice to cover different aspects of being an international student in America, since it is such a desired career path. I will cover things like academics, social life, housing and finances. If there is anything you would like me to write about, shoot me a DM!
