What do you like most about this neighborhood or city? It’s culturally diverse and open to interpretation. Plus the university gave me money for school.
How has the recession affected you? Decided to go to grad school in the UK due to limited employment prospects in my hometown (Seattle, WA).
What would you spend your last £5 on? tea and biscuits (it’s the UK — standard).
Why did you choose these 3 items? I’m a snackmasta, and these items are part of my everyday life. but don’t forget the £1.00=$1.70 conversion!
Angela is a very close friend of mine, who is also a 1st year PhD student. So, thank you for finding the time… – h!
