I had an amazing exchange at NYU! I had the chance to study with top academics and traveled to four different cities in Florida and Puerto Rico during the spring break. My most memorable moments include seeing snow for the first time! Exchange is definitely a rewarding and unforgettable experience!

While on exchange, I experienced the difference in culture between UK and HK. I went to many events at the Warwick Art center and attended a band society competition called the ‘Battle of the Bands’. Finally, I attended a TEDxWarwick event. It was my first TED talk and the topics and ideas that the speakers spoke about were really inspiring!!
