I Found My Niche at The University of West Florida
Student Name: Julia Ribeiro
School: University of West Florida
“Hello hello! My name is Julia and I’m from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil! I’m a junior at the University of West Florida and will be a senior in August. I’m majoring in Communications, double minoring in Sports Management and Sports Psychology, and I am pursuing a certificate in Digital Marketing. Not only do I study at UWF, but I’m also part of the swimming & diving team.
Being able to study in the US as an international student has been an amazing experience for me. I couldn’t be happier for all the experiences I have had here and the friends I have made.
A funny story that happened to me my freshman year was that I didn’t know what a syllabus was. When I was going to class my first week and started to listen to all my professors talking about a syllabus, I had no clue what was going on. I felt so lost and thought that it was going to be so hard for me to adapt. However, I decided to ask a friend and she explained what it was and where I could find it.
One thing I took from this experience is to NEVER give up! Be open to meeting new people, and you will be amazed by how much they are willing to help you and be there for you!” – @juribeiro23
