Who I am and my journey in the University of Surrey will be explored within the next few weeks. By way of introduction, my name is Ban Lahham and I am in my third and final year in the Law LLB pathway. I enjoy reading and writing more than I would like to admit. Anyway, I moved to Guildford at the age of 19 and have been living here for the last four years. I was born in Jordan and raised in the United Arab Emirates. Considering I was raised in UAE, I initially struggled to adapt to different and diverse cultures (to be talked about in the next article). I spent the first two years at Manor Park accommodation until I moved into my own apartment by second year. My journey into the LLB pathway at University of Surrey was simple unlike many others. Deciding what pathway to pursue was the easiest decision I have ever made. I undertook the Foundation year before progressing into the first year of Law School. As cliché as it sounds, I have always dreamed of studying law and becoming a lawyer. I have spent almost my entire teenage life convincing my parents of studying Law abroad. Needless to say, this was not easy. I studied a complete year in the American University of Sharjah majoring in Finance before I finally persuaded my parents of my decision to study law abroad. Studying in the United Kingdom was not based on my passion but rather the distance between my family and I. I am indeed a very family oriented individual, making my move to Surrey a lot more difficult than I had originally anticipated. Aside from all that, the last four years of my life have been a rollercoaster. I have learned so much, made friends that became family, and prepared myself for my career.
