«I had a chance to visit Russia when I was a child so I always wanted to come here again»

«I had a chance to visit Russia when I was a child so I always wanted to come here again»

© Quynh Pham Hoang Ngoc

Quynh Pham Hoang Ngoc moved to Moscow from Vietnam four years ago to study the Russian-taught Bachelor's programme in Media Communication. Since arriving she has learned about what it’s like to build bridges between two completely different cultures.

Why have you chosen HSE?

My family somehow has a special relationship with Russia, my parents have been working here for almost 17 years now, so I also feel like I have a strong connection with this country. Moreover, I had a chance to visit Russia when I was a child so I always wanted to come here again. I chose HSE because it is one of the best Russian universities at the moment, especially in my chosen profession. 

What are the reasons students choose to study abroad?

Students choose to study abroad because firstly, they want to go to a new place, discover a new culture, and learn about the world outside of their home country. Secondly, they may want to go to a country where the education is better than their own or just because they like that country. Last but not least, by studying abroad, they have a chance to meet new people from around the world, learn new skills and get knowledge through these relationships and through living far away from their family's comfort zone.

What are the challenges of living in Russia?

There are many challenges of living in a new country, and Russia is not an exception. The cultural differences can be one of them, for example, Russian language, food or even lifestyle, but gradually, I think everyone can almost fit in.

Living in a dorm with international students fills your life with amazing memories. What is the funniest story?

There are so many precious memories that I got while living in a dorm with international students but there's a beautiful story that I will never forget. That was maybe a few months after I arrived in the dorm. I brought an ukulele with me and I was so shy, but I still tried to play and sing in my room one evening. Suddenly someone knocked on my door – it was the girl next door – and she asked me if I was the one who sings and plays the instrument. I said yes and apologized in case she was disturbed by the sound but she just laughed and said that she liked it and told me to keep singing because the dorm wasn't a library so I can play and sing – as long as it's not during the night. A few minutes later, a boy from the other room also knocked on my door and gave me some donuts and said that he and his roommates really like my voice.

What are your plans for the next 5 years? 

My plans for the next 5 years is to finish my Bachelor's and Master's degree, find a good job, release my first music album and promote my YouTube channel to a larger audience.
