Joanna, student Health Food & Innovation Management

“I’m from Mexico, from a city close to the American border. In my old university, I was part of the Track and Field team. I’m a heptathlete. Hepta means seven in Greek, so a heptathlon is seven-event contest. This means you have to pretty good in all disciplines. I was thinking about becoming a professional, but finding sponsors and having enough income is really hard. 

In the end, I decided to go study abroad and that’s how I ended up here. Today we have the Open Day for people that hopefully come to study here next year. I give information about the university, tell them a little bit about my experiences and try to convince them to study at UM.”
