Divesh from Mauritius
Saint Mary's University Class of 2018
My name is Divesh and I am a 4th year Finance and Entrepreneurship student at SMU. I am from the small and not so popular island located in the Indian Ocean called Mauritius. Coming to SMU was more like a roller coaster ride for me, with all its ups and downs. At first, it was an overwhelming experience for me because I was experiencing a totally new culture and I was wrestling with the differences between the Canadian and Mauritian Cultures.
However, if I have the chance to live those past four years of my life again, I would choose SMU again without any hesitation. SMU taught me so much and allowed me to grow into the person that I am today. From the small classes and teachers who know you personally to all those work and volunteer opportunities on and off-campus, SMU and Halifax certainly contributes to a more successful transition into adulthood. The international experience at SMU is so big that you learn how to accept each other's differences and work together on an international market. SMU has always and will always welcome new students amongst its premises and I am glad and thankful for being part of the "Husky World".
