      What has been your experience as an international student like? (If applicable)

      What I love about being a new international student at Andover is that you have a perfect balance between a place to study and be with friends, and a place to be with family and rest. Being able to recognise this as an advantage and enjoy it makes it a hundred times better. 

       

      What are your favorite thing(s) about Andover?

      I love the people here. I know everyone says it, and I think the admission’s office does it on purpose. The kids here are super nice as well as being smart, there are exceptions of course, but I think it’s one of the things that I think sets Andover apart from a lot of places like it. 

       

      How does Andover compare to your home?

      I have quite a broad concept of home. My mum lives in Spain and my dad in Peru (although he’s studying in Cambridge at the moment), so home is not a concrete place for me. My family is a big part of it, and everything changing all the time is also pretty familiar to me. At Andover, I am alone and everything is constant. Like I said before, I love having both.

       

       

      Briefly talk about an interesting experience you had while visiting another part of the world (if applicable).

      My dad and I are huge fans of Denmark. We’ve been going there every summer since I was eleven. That year, my dad gave me 1000 kroner to spend on whatever I wanted. I flipped out and thought I was rich until I reached the counter at the closest ice cream store and realised that there are ten kroner to every pound sterling.
