At Lafayette, most students were searching for jobs in the private sector while in Ireland and the UK, many students will get jobs in the public sector since it is such a larger sector over here. The core group of 20 students in my Masters program come from the UK, Ireland, Canada, Germany, Spain, Japan, China and United States. This is what the Victory Scholarship is all about; embedding oneself in a different country and learning from foreign cultures and viewpoints. This experience will help me grow as a person and is valuable for better understanding the global economy.
This weekend also marked the first game all of the Scholars could participate in games (minus Caroline). Matt and I were able to contribute to a win for the Ulster Elks and remain atop the Northern Division. I also have to give a shout out to the U16 girls squad that Caroline and I coach. They are currently undefeated and won a tight game on Friday by one point. Great job girls, keep up the hard work!
