The thing that attracted me to LSE primarily was the multicultural atmosphere on campus. I wanted to be surrounded by people from all over the world; to hear inspirational stories of what it is like to live in countries other than my own, and in a small way experience their unique cultures. I believe that there is nowhere more diverse to study than at LSE. The main enjoyment of my course has been derived from the technical ability I have developed over the past two years. This has been very demanding but also incredibly intellectually rewarding. I have especially enjoyed how the statistical content of this course overlaps between modules, enabling me to understand new concepts more deeply. In my second year I joined the LSE student volunteer tutoring scheme. This gave me the opportunity to go into a local underachieving primary school with the aim of providing a role model to the students as well as assisting with their learning. Over the 12 week placement I assisted in teaching classes of maths, ICT and drama. It was a privilege to be able to give something back to the local community and by the end of the programme I really felt that I had made a difference to the students' development. Last summer I undertook an internship placement in the Actuarial and Planning department at Allianz and have subsequently been offered a placement in their graduate training programme after I have completed my degree.
