Madalena Ribeiro – Marketing with Events Management

Hi everyone, my name is Madalena Ribeiro, I am from Portugal and I live in a village called Cascais that is nearby the beach, so when its summer it takes me 2 minutes to go to the beach. A strange fact about this, I am allergic to the sea.
I moved to Birmingham last year because since I remember I always told my parents that I wanted to study abroad for the university. Now I am in my second year of Marketing with Events Management, and thanks to UCB I am able to study what I am passionate about with people that have the same passion.

One of my favourite hobbies is to watch series and movies, especially superheroes that I didn’t know that I liked until my boyfriend introduced me to them. I also like to shopping like every girl and obviously to travel, and I just have one continent left to visit, what is amazing.

Finally, my experience living alone in a different country has been amazing until now, I made a lot of friends from Portugal and from all over the world , but also I already had 2 jobs without any work experience from the past.

Ivelina Ivanova – Aviation and Airport Management

Hi All, my name is Ivelina Ivanova and I am currently studying BA (Hons) Aviation and Airport Management.  I originate from Ruse which is situated in Bulgaria and five of my favourite things include airplanes, books, experiences, University and my boxing gloves.

An interesting fact about me is that I roll all kinds of plastic paper and collect it.

If I had to chose one sentence that best describes me it would be ‘I dream my painting and I paint my dream’.

The thing I love most about UCB is the friendly atmosphere.

Milan Čerpl – Events Management

Hi Everybody, my name is Milan Čerpl and I am from Kladno in the Czech Republic.

I am currently studying BA (hons) Events Management.  The thing I love most about UCB is that even though the work is challenging navigating your studies is so incredibly easy.  I enjoy living in the UK and a random fact about me is that I like colder weather and the UK rain is my favourite thing.

If I had to give one sentence that sums me up id say that I’m always investing in my future!  Five of my favourite things include, beer, lame jokes, cartoons, movies and history.
