August Student Spotlight: Idia Aisien< back to News
Student at New York University - EHS St. George Resident
Lagos, Nigeria-native Idia Aisien came to NYC to pursue a Master's degree in International PR at New York University. She was so excited about her move to NYC that she came a little early... an entire season early!
Idia explains, "I’ve dreamt of living in NYC since I was little. I heard it was as busy as my hometown in Lagos, but I knew it was not the same thing– people come from all over the world to live in New York, and I always knew I’d be one of them. I got accepted into NYU and I couldn’t wait for the Fall semester to move to New York so I decided to take summer classes as well.
So far, Idia is getting the most out of her time in NYC and at EHS by remembering to make time for herself.
"I would just like to say that your perspective is very important in everything you do," Idia says. "I love living at EHS and although it’s easy to be overwhelmed by daily activities and deadlines, it’s also important for me to take time for myself, and remember to take advantage of all the opportunities/great things there are to do here in NYC.
