From perfect strangers to my family away from home, this was only possible because of the International Society.

I really enjoyed my year at the International Society. I wish there was something similar to it in my city. When you arrive in a new country and you don’t know anyone, a place like this is like a home far from home. You make a lot of friends; you learn about other cultures and countries in a fun way, you are enriched in the end. 

Thank you for this amazing experience. If I ever come back to Manchester, I will definitely attend other events.
