Exeter is an outstanding and leading university, from the beginning I was sure that being a student at such a university will provide many positive attributes. As well as the city was amazing.

Go ahead, being a university professor is both fulfilling and rewarding. Being able to give back, helping others progress, and passing on knowledge is one of the overwhelming feelings that one could feel.

I plan to open an institution that provides extra curricula work for students in schools. This plan will help rise school students’ competence and critical abilities.
