A New Start

My name is Fares.

I’m a passionate, talkative and active computer science student, and I am the first year representative for both the KCL Computing Society and the KCL Tech Society.

I am obsessed with technology, and I actively try to keep up with its latest advancements

I am not the most exciting writer (I admit, I’ve tried) but, throughout the following year or more, I will be writing about the experiences I have living in Foggy London Town. I’ll be writing about the places I visit in and around London, the people I meet in and out of the university, and the opportunities I find and try to grasp that are given to me being a student at such an incredible place to be as King’s College London.

So far, my first semester was a blast, and I believe I’m not the only one on my course who thinks so! The lectures are interactive and friendly. The teaching assistants are the kindest and most supportive I’ve ever met. The people around me share the same passion as me, so much that I have developed a sense of belonging to the atmosphere.

Over the past few months, I’ve discovered that places like King’s keep us busy, but in a good way. There’s always something to do, always somewhere to go, always someone to meet! I’m part of the baking society too (there’s a society for everything), and there’s events throughout the year. The computing society hosted a wonderful Christmas dinner too, which took place at Smollensky’s on the Strand, not more than five minutes walk away from my campus!

And that, was just the beginning.
