Student blogs: Meet Sofia
Hello everyone! My name is Sofia. This is my first blog post and I’m really excited to take you all on my Loughborough journey and give you a little insight on what it’s like to be a second year Drama student at Loughborough.
Fun fact about me: I am an international student. Being an international student is difficult sometimes, I get homesick a lot and I absolutely hate flying (No matter how beautiful the view is sometimes).
But being at Loughborough really has provided me with so many new opportunities and has become my second home. I want to share all my experiences with you, I will be uploading a blog post every month sharing something new with you about my Loughborough Life.
I really enjoy my course and love all the performances that we have to do. My course is luckily 100% based on coursework so no exams for me! But that does mean I have to work extra hard on my essays and performances.
Now, Loughborough isn’t all about studying of course. We have an amazing student life as well which definitely helps during my study breaks. We have so many societies here i which really allow me to find people who share the same interests as I do!
I am part of Stage Society again this year as I was last year. We performed Witches of Eastwick in the beginning of this semester and it was fantastic. We worked really hard on the show and the turnout was amazing!
I enjoy trying new things. Last year I joined AU Cheerleading and it really was a blast, I learned a lot of new techniques and made so many new friends. I’ve never been the sporty type but it did include dance and flexibility which is more my thing.
This year, I joined AU Dance and we are rehearsing every week and getting ready for our 3-day show in February.
As I am a second year, I currently live in Loughborough town. I definitely prefer it to living in halls, plus I get to live with my flatmates again from last year who I have really grown close to. I do sometimes miss how close I used to be to lectures and the Students’ Union but I feel a lot more like an adult living in my own house, where I have to do all the cleaning instead of having a cleaner and my own cooking instead of being catered.
This made me decide to live in town again for my third year. But because all my current flatmates are planning on doing a placement year, I’ll be living with some of my course friends next year. We went on a few house viewings a month ago and have chosen the one we wanted already.
Thanks for reading! See you next month!
