Tanit Ianie López Vergara Anaya, Mexico
My name is Tanit I am from Mexico and I am studying a Masters of Science in Nursing Studies. I love being a nurse, it has given me the opportunity to travel all around the world and experience healthcare from different perspectives, and now I have the opportunity to immerse not only in Irish culture, but also getting to know other students with the same interests and different experiences in healthcare from all over the world. I am also interested in arts and have been a dancer for most of my life, so I look forward to joining a few Clubs and Societies at UL. Arriving to Ireland was by far one of the most exciting adventures of my life, and I am sure this year at UL will be filled with exciting new experiences and life changing moments.
Past Ambassador Sunaina Mariam Augustine, India
I am Sunaina Mariam Augustine, an ex-Naval Officer from India. I love books and music, so much that you will never find me without my Kindle or earphones. I have 14yrs of service in the Indian Armed forces. When I left service, I wanted to join the corporate but was not sure if I was ready for it. So I decided to go back to studies and find out what’s new in the corporate world.
I had always wanted to study abroad, and I decided it is time I do that. When I decided to study away from my country I had two choices; Ireland and New Zealand, it was tough to choose between the two, as both were known for their education system. So what made me choose Ireland? It was the University of Limerick that sealed the deal for me. They had the course that I wanted, have the most beautiful campus, and they had all the required information available for me online. Sitting in India, I knew what exactly is going on this campus. I feel I knew so much about this University even before reaching here, that it prepared me well for my trip. University also has a wonderful social media presence that gives you all you need to know about studying here.
Now once I got my offer, the International Education Division and the accommodation office was in constant touch with me. They literally walked me through the entire process. Once I was at the university, various societies and groups were willing to help me and get me settled. Other than the fact that this University offers one of the best education in the country with the opportunity to interact with the corporate world what I love most about here is the community. Students and staff here are forever helpful. I am yet to meet a person who has refused to help me here. I have been here for 6 months now and trust me, I am yet to miss my home. This place has become truly a home away from home for me. I have a family here. I am currently pursuing a Master’s in International Management and Global Business at the University of Limerick, and that was the best decision I took in the last 2yrs.
I have received help from various volunteers in this university in various forms and its time I give back to the university and I will do it with all my heart. Why I am a good fit for the Ambassador is because I love this place and I would love more students to come here and have what I have. A top-notch education, a beautiful campus and great campus life.
