Helloooo everyone!!! My name is Rocio, but you can call me Rosie if you prefer. I am 20 years old, and I am currently in my second year of BA Childhood Studies. I come from Gibraltar, which is located in the southern tip of Spain, but is a British territory. As I am so close to Spain, I can speak both Spanish and English, which makes me bilingual.
The things that interest me most are spending time with children, entertaining them and teaching them new exciting things, horse riding in the nice fresh mornings, watching romantic comedies with friends, arts and crafts and cooking. All of these are things I truly enjoy, they help me relax and keep me motivated and determined.
One more thing you need to know about me is that I am crazy about Disney movies – I love the characters and stories and it reminds me about my childhood. I believe that even though you grow there is always a small child in us and I believe that we always need to remember to see life with the eyes of a child, in order to avoid getting into the boring usual routines that everyone gets tired of.
What I love most about studying at UCB is how everyone makes you feel welcome – no matter what your race, culture or gender, everyone is happy to help. Another thing I love is the ease of meeting new friends – I am staying in The Maltings, one of the UCB student accommodation buildings, and I must say it has been a lovely experience as you don’t stop meeting new people and taking part in different activities such as Zumba, yoga or even watching different movies in the common area.
If anyone needs some help settling down, meeting new friends, finding their way around Birmingham or UCB or any other query, I’m always happy to help!
