The spring break is about to end. In a few days holidays will be over and MiM’s will once gain be back on campus for another term of hard work, group projects, networking, job searching, partying and great moments that we will remember forever.

When reflecting on my experience as an LBS student, what I like the most is the possibility of getting to know people from literally all over the world. I guess that apart from the UN general assembly is hard to find a place as diverse and multicultural as our campus in London. The possibility of exploring cultural differences and learn from different perspectives and views in one place is an invaluable experience that justifies on itself spending one year at LBS, but we tend to value this only when we are far away from this environment. During my holidays in my home country I realized that I was always telling my friends about the conversations and enjoyable moments I had had with my fellow MiM’s during last term.

I know they have already influenced my views on the world.
