I recently started the working as a social leader for EC, and I am doing the welcome activities on Sunday, which means I get to show students around London.
It’s quite a nice day out, considering I get to meet new students, and spend a fair amount of time in Central London. We usually go to Camden Market after lunch, which is one of my favourite places to hang out in London.
It’s been very rewarding to meet the students before they start school the next day, and getting to know where they come from and their first impressions. It makes me nostalgic and remember how I felt when I first moved to London – their passion and how impressed they are with Big Ben, Westminster, Trafalgar Square… And their many questions about the multiple types of beer each pub offers! It’s a great reminder of how lucky I am to be living in London and I am glad I can share it with the new students.
