"Given that I am an international student who was in need of a sense of community, I strongly believe that there’s no place like Surrey."
"During the time spent on researching different universities, I found Surrey to be a good fit due to its eclectic blend of cultures, academic excellence and strong industrial links. Given that I am an international student who was in need of a sense of community, I strongly believe that there’s no place like Surrey. More so, the Surrey county happens to be a thriving hub for commerce and financial services so it was a no-brainer when it came down to the specifics i.e. geography, transport networks and climate.
Due to the aforementioned, considering a year in industry was one of the wisest decisions I have made, since the theoretical understanding of commerce would be adequately supplemented with real world experience – which I believe is the icing on the cake.

Hailing from a family of bankers and engineers whom I feel are subservient to their respective workplace, I wanted to be a trailblazer in my own capacity in terms of reducing my dependency on external factors for employment. Plus, the possibility of innovation seems boundless when given the creative freedom to explore the uncharted – hence my decision to pursue Business Management BSc with a major in Entrepreneurship.
In recent times, the growing emergence of fintech and other such disruptive technologies have made the entrepreneurial scene all the more exciting. From all the great moments I have had, there are a few that I would cherish for a lifetime: managing to co-find an Advertising Society, taking the lead as the Head Undergraduate Student Rep for Surrey Business School, excelling academically; as well as playing an active and integral part in improving overall student experience.
