Hello everyone. My name is Stacy and I’m the International student ambassador for Kenya and I am currently in my first year of pharmacy here at the University of East Anglia.
So far what I love about Norwich is the cute and versatile city center, It looks like it’s straight out of a Hallmark movie and I can’t wait to experience it, especially during Christmas when the markets come up. There’s a variety of restaurants in the city center, and they’re very affordable, meaning you can often treat yourself to a nice lunch or dinner without denting your account.
The greenery in Norwich is soothing to the eyes and quite relaxing. During early fall I’d find myself talking strolls around the field on the campus which has a pond and I’d just sit by the benches and unwind.
Another perk of living in Norwich is that you have access to the beach and its's a short train ride away from Cromer beach. This is an experience you wouldn’t want to miss out on. Especially when you watch that sunset from the pier! I don’t think words are enough to describe just how beautiful it is. You’d just have to experience it for yourself. I’m enjoying my stay in Norwich so far and I can’t wait to see what it has in store for me.
