Waterford is a quiet city and the cost of living is low comparing to other cities is Ireland. I have been living in Waterford for more than 6 years now.
How did this add to your college experience?
The Education in Ireland international student ambassador programme has given me a chance to meet people from all around the world that were studying in Ireland. Through this programme, I have had an opportunity to share my experiences with others by writing and sharing blogs. Being the president of Malaysian society has given me a chance to lead my team to organise events such as a two day trip to Killarney and Dingle, Co Kerry and the Chinese New Year event. These were unarguably precious experiences that I will always appreciate. WIT business school also acknowledges student's hard work through the annual recognition award ceremony - the Rowe Medal, CIMA Award and Dean List Award that I had received has given me a sense of personal achievement and also enhanced my CV.
