Teamwork, Baby!

Hello Hello!

Throughout this term, I got to work with a group of wonderful students from around the world to complete a communications project. We did a ton of secondary research, surveys, and interviews that ultimately translated into a 2500-word report and 15 minute presentation. Though group projects can sometimes be strenuous, I found this experience at KCL to be enlightening.

My teammates were definitely diverse… the ages ranged from 18 to 30… from Australia, Spain, South America, England, Africa, Japan, and America… cross-culturally bonding right here! I love them very much!

Here was our take on teamwork;-)

Enjoy,

Where I Meet Girls…

Hello friends,

So what did I do this past weekend? I purchased a train ticket and made my way down to Oxford for their 2011 InterVarsity Debate Tournament. I joined the King’s College debate society at the beginning of the term and have been enjoying British Parliamentary ever since.

The Oxford tournament is the biggest debate competition on the European circuit every year, aside from the European Championships. I got to meet some incredibly talented speakers from all around the world, including the United States.

Many of my closest friends in the UK also do debate; you definitely build a family after traveling together for so long:-)

So this is where I also meet girls…

Sincerely,

JZ

Leadership, Leadership, Leadership!

Hello friends,

It has been over two weeks now, so I apologise for the delay. What have I been doing? Well attending the International Leadership Association Global Conference was one.

This was my first academic conference and wanted to share with everyone.

Thanks,

The Little Things in Life…

Hello everyone,

It has been more than a month since I’ve been in the United Kingdom. Naturally over time, you develop some complaints about minor everyday things. So this blog will simply be about me as a drama queen.

Hope you find this at least somewhat helpful!

Cheers,

JZ

Friendly Neighborhood English Spiderman!

Hello friends!

Everyday when traveling to campus, I see a group of people practicing Parkour near a local truck ramp. For those that don’t know, Parkour is the sport of freestyle running. Basically, you have athletic people making a playground of normally dangerous urban environments.  🙂  I had to get it on film!

UK education is different… less class time… fewer assessments… focus on independent work… TONS of reading. This is going to take some time to get use to.

Thanks for tuning in!
