Hello! I’m Paolo. This is my second year at Concordia. I’m from El Salvador, but currently living in Panama. I’m a very adventurous person, love extreme sports and having fun! I also enjoy drawing and painting.
The one thing I wished I would have known back in my first semester is… to take life day by day. Life is too short to feel stressed about a quiz or exam; enjoy your university experience because you’re only going to have one. That being said, staying on track with your classes is very important.
A tip I have for new students is… to be as organized as possible. Have the date of every assignment, quiz, and exam visually available at all times. The best way to keep track of everything going on around you is being able to see it all in one place.
My favourite part of being a Concordia student is… that every student is super friendly and supportive; you never feel alone because you will always have someone willing to help you out.
