Welcome to my journey!! (This is very exciting as it’s my first blog!) 🙂

My name is Lucia Sanz Macareno, and I am in my final year of Mechanical Engineering. In this blog I’ll be giving you a short introduction about myself, and I’ll tell you what I’ll be writing in this blog for you. 

To begin with, I am from Madrid, Spain, I lived there my whole life until moving out for university when I was 18. I used to go to a British school, where I sat both IGCSEs and A-Levels, this helped in the process of applying to universities in the UK. Moving abroad is a big step that honestly was hard at the beginning but with time it got easier and now I love it! I recommend this experience to everyone, as I think it was the best decision, it has helped to be more independent and more confident in myself. 

I started at University of Surrey in Sept 2020 (which was Covid year… crazy ik but it all worked out!!)

In this blog, I plan on telling you my experiences living away from home, some advice that I think you would find useful, my life at University and how I manage to balance studying, work and living the student life! I hope you enjoy this and find it useful!!! 

See you on the next blog!
