Inspiration for Aspiration – Sharing Student Stories

I, Nargis Dewji, daughter of Pyarali and Zaheda Dewji, am a final year BComm student at NUI Galway from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania majoring in Economics. I was shortlisted for the Union of students in Ireland (USI) International Student of the Year Award and Alhamdulillah took the award home on the 19th of April 2018.

After studying a semester of B. Nursing in Malaysia and Business Administration in London, I wanted a degree that offered me more areas for specialization and the BComm at NUI Galway offered this. I picked the university because it was different to me. I had never experienced living in a smaller city and wanted something different from London. I believe this was the best decision I ever made. There are so many opportunities and things to do in Ireland. Also after visiting UK, USA and Malaysia, it was a dream to complete my studies and work in Ireland.
