With Westminster, I have had a chance to be part of fast-paced life of the capital where news is brought alive sometimes right in front of your eyes. With an access to career services, I got familiar with the work of Victim Support Organisation where I am currently working as a fully trained volunteer caseworker. Thus now, almost at the end of my studies, I am confident in my career options; with an offer for an exciting work placement. And I am most grateful to have had a privilege to be part of the challenging rhythm of London, with my own little home right in the heart of it.
