Lia Stancheva, Student Ambassador, University of Leeds
Coming from Bulgaria, doing my Bachelor’s degree in the UK and having the chance to spend a year abroad in Germany while working at the biggest private pharmaceutical company worldwide has allowed me to develop myself in so many different aspects in the last three years. I genuinely feel as a citizen of the world, as well as because I have been an Intercultural Student Ambassador and now a LinkToLeeds Ambassador at university – to support other students who are going through similar challenges while moving abroad makes me feel appreciated and useful to the student community.
