Andrew Taiwo form Nigeria
My name is Andrew Taiwo, I am from Nigeria and also a student of Alytaus Kolegija University of Applied Science. My journey and experience in Lithuania has been amazing and wonderful that Why I call it “Beautiful Lithuania”. Lithuania is not a speaking English country but she is a intercultural country with different people from neighboring and other countries around her but she is Beautiful and lovely, guess why I said so? She is full of nature, beautiful ladies and lovely landscape.
My journey was not easy from Nigeria to Lithuania, I had to go through some heavy and rough process but I was glad I got here. The first person I met was Lithuanian but could not speak English, I find it difficult to communicate but luckily I met someone who could speak and that really felt good. The culture, lifestyle, weather, food, communication, nature and others are totally different from my country, the weather is a major big deal for me that I really took serious because Health is Wealth. My coming to Lithuania has given great deal of opportunities of meeting people from other part of the world, but sometimes Lithuanian feel shy about their spoken English skills and really difficult for them to communicate also speaking Lithuanian is hard but I will get through it soon. The first few months were difficult with the food because it was really different, it was difficult at first, I ended up make the normal Nigerian food when you find yourself outside Nigeria which was easy for me but at the long run I had to adapt to everything around my environment and today I can say here is my second Home because it feels like home but though I miss home. Have friends was fun and amazing but young and old, now Nigerian music and dancing skills brought more friends close to me. So far so good my studies have been amazing with the help of my lectures and friends around me, well I don’t tell what the future have installed for me yet but I would love to stay and start a new chapter of my life here.
