Farewell – OurWarwick

The day we’ve all been waiting for arrived on the same day as the global Walk The World Informa marathon. Informa offices around the world were invited to organise a walk and to nominate a chosen charity. Colleagues registered to take part on their walk page and to make a minimum donation to charity. In 2017, almost half of Informa colleagues took part in Walk the World, collectively walking over 28,000km, raising over £155,000 for some incredible charities. This year, I walked 20km alongside my colleagues from all the London offices from Putney Bridge, along the Thames, throughout Richmond Park and ended the day with drinks and dinner at Pitcher and Piano in Richmond to celebrate our journey. Back to my initial argument, I am happy to let you all know that I have received my final year results, as well as my overall degree classification: 2:1 with honours in Language, Culture and Communication.

With graduation coming up very soon, 17 of July (first day of the 5 or 6 days of ceremonies), I will also add here group pictures and highlights of that day since this is my final blog post on Warwick Student Blogs and hence it also marks the end of my contract with Unitemps. I would highly recommend to anyone thinking about becoming a student blogger to stop thinking about it and to simply apply (and start doing it) because it has been of the best things that I ever decided to do whilst studying at Warwick. The past two and a half years writing here have helped me to reflect upon all activities, adventures and experiences I have went through at uni. It helped me to develop personally and professionally, to learn from my errors and to simply put down in words what I was feeling at certain points in this fruitful chapter that taught me so much.

I will be eternally grateful to my parents who have supported me spiritually and financially these 3 beautiful years, to the incredible and kind people I have met at uni: lecturers, course mates, house mates, to this country which has met and surpassed all of my initial expectations and has helped me to get culturally adjusted effortlessly. Last but not least, I want to thank YOU. Whether you are my relative, peer, friend, lecturer, staff member, prospective student, I want you to know how much I appreciate you taking the time every now and again to read my thoughts, to keep up with what I’ve been doing and engaging in.

I am confident that my London experience will help me become the person I was meant to be. I also intend on getting a master’s degree in the near future, but hopefully I will figure out until then what I actually want to achieve, where I want to go next, what that master’s will allow me to do and to grow career wise. Thank you, Warwick University for the best 3 years of my life so far!
