Another two videos have been uploaded to our YouTube channel. This time we profile Mahfuzah Zainol, an occupational therapy student from Malaysia. Mahfuzah was the Wales regional winner of the Shine! Awards 2010.
Part 1 of the videos is titled 'Mahfuzah's story'. In it, Mahfuzah talks about her experiences as an international student in Cardiff.
In Part 2, 'Shine! awards 2010', Mahfuzah explains what winning an award means to her.
The Shine! awards are run by the British Council and celebrate the achievements of international students who are studying in the UK. International students from all walks of life and stages of education are invited to write a "letter home" explaining how they feel an education in the UK is preparing them for a brighter future.
12 regional finalists were selected from over 1300 students from 121 different countries. 24 year old Melissa Illboudo from Burkina Fasa won the title of International Student of the Year 2010 at a glitzy awards ceremony in London which all of the 12 finalists were invited to.
Last year's Wales regional finalist, Alex Leung, is also a student at Cardiff University and his story can be watched on our YouTube channel.
We encourage international students studying at Cardiff to enter the awards in 2011, it is a great way to reflect on your studies and if you are selected as a regional finalist there is a prize of £1000 up for grabs!
Our congratulations once again to Mahfuzah, what a talented bunch Cardiff University students are!
Enjoy the sunshine!
