I’m Alfred Koech, a student here at ECU, originally from Kenya and I am pursuing a Bachelors of Social Science. I chose Social Science because I am passionate in working with people. Social Science is a broad spectrum and you get to learn a lot of things, and for now I’ve learned a lot of things. I’ve managed to get to understand how to work with people, communities, and also to integrate into other societies that I didn’t know if I could. Another factor is, it’s more diverse, a lot of students from all over the world study here and I should say, that I’ve met a lot of friends here in ECU Here in ECU, the environment is cool, it’s a bit serene, given the fact it is located in a quiet place, it’s also close to ammenities such as the train. I’ve also gained employment through my work placement, which was the highlight of it all because after finishing my practicals down there they asked me if they could observe me to work part time, of which I said a big yes, of course, its given me an opportunity to still learn more about the field.
