Nolwenn de Gibon
I was born and raised in Normandy, France, but later went to boarding school in Paris. I completed my UG at SOAS, studying International Management and Mandarin, which I started studying in middle school back in Normandy. I have lived in Beijing for a year, and I am really excited to be going to Shanghai this coming September. After graduating from SOAS, I went back to Paris where I interned at two companies for 6 months each, which gave me some time to think about coming back to London for masters.
The student rep system at the LSE is a great way to represent your classmates but also to interact with the academic staff outside the classroom. It really gives a voice to students in both the school's academic and non-academic matters. Being a rep, you realize that the LSE administration is open to feedback and change, even if the results might not be visible before we leave.
