Jasmine is a Nursing student and she has studied abroad for a semester at VIA University College, Denmark, as part of the Erasmus+ Programme.
Joanna has studied abroad for a year at the University of Hong Kong as part of her History course.
"Hong Kong enlightened my life in so many ways, and opened up employment opportunities and desires to work abroad in the future, gave me sofas to crash on across the world, gave me self-sufficiency and independence, time, work and money management, language skills, opportunities to see so many beautiful countries across Asia but most of all, a longing to go back to Hong Kong – my reason to be nocturnal, the city of my dreams, my home, my happy place, my urban jungle."
