Hello, I am Lina

Hi, my name is Lina. I studied Industrial Engineering in Colombia and I am specialized in Process and Quality Management. When I decided to come to the UK to improve my English, I thought that was the most important Lina Astonthing I had made. But this year, something really amazing happened. I realised that in the UK I could study the course that I have dreamed all my life. When I knew Aston University, I knew there would be my place.


Aston University/Banco Santander Scholarship gave me the opportunity to start my dream. I can not describe what I felt when I received the positive notification about my scholarship. For me is an honour. For me it was unbelievable to be part of such a prestigious University. But then I realized that now I could be part of something big and important. I am satisfied, I feel fortunate and proud of start my Master in Social Responsibility and Sustainability in Aston University.


I am from Bogotá, Colombia in South America. I am interested in films and I like go to the theatre. I love sunny days to walk and eat an ice cream. I find fascinating know new places and thing: landscapes, buildings, museums, monuments. I really love travelling. That is the reason why I am here. For me it is thrilling to be in another country that allows me to learn about new cultures, places and people. I hope to be a motivating person, full of projects to fulfill and enjoying my life.


In the future, I would like to help people to achieve their goals, companies to be successful and societies to achieve sustainable environments. For that reason I chose to study MSc Social Responsibility and Sustainability. Aston University is known for its world-class teaching quality and strong links to industry, government and commerce, and this could help me to get a huge benefit to my career and it will broaden my horizons. I am sure the University has the tools for me to learn and expand my knowledge.

Now I am really pleased to show other how is my life in Birmingham, In Aston University!
