‘At UKSA I have learned more than I ever imagined; everything from writing a CV to firefighting. Vanessa’s wealth of knowledge is amazing! We had lessons all day and in then evenings we met for dinner with new friends – the food is definitely a great memory. Some evenings we went swimming or played competitive volleyball.
