What is your city/town known for? Is it different from Sterling?

My city owns the most beautiful square of Europe, la Place Stanislas. It's a bigger city than Sterling with more entertainment.

If we could visit one place in your country, where would it be and why?

I think it would be Paris because of the numerous monuments.

Did you always know you wanted to study in the U.S.?

No, when I had a family in the U.S., I went to visit them, and I have loved this country.

What were you excited or nervous about before you left?

I was excited to see how colleges in the U.S. are, if it's really like in the movies. Also excited to play soccer every day.

What advice would you give another student thinking about studying in the U.S.?

Just do it, it's a great experience you will remember your entire life. I will be fluent in English and you are doing something that few people do, and it makes you unique.

It's the campus life that I like the best. Always being with the team and living together and playing soccer everyday. Northeastern is a great opportunity to start your class experience.
