As an American starting this year off in the foreign city of Cardiff, I was sure of only one thing: I wanted to end this year with a media job within the UK.

Within a week of starting at Cardiff Met, it became clear to me that my goal was achievable. Being an international student, it can be frustrating trying to find a job, but Cardiff Met gave me the confidence to look past the obstacles and validated that I was indeed employable.

In the beginning, I knew I wanted to move to Wales, and Cardiff Met let that happen. I knew I wanted to find internships and jobs within the media and Cardiff Met gave me the opportunity to. Now that I have confidence in my career choice and a new array of opportunities waiting for me, and I have Cardiff Met to thank for that too.
