Meet Patricia Plavan. She is one of HELP University’s (HU) international students; she comes from Uruguay and is currently doing her Bachelors in Business (Marketing) at HU. Here is what he had to say about HELP University:
“My name is Patricia Plavan, I come from Uruguay and I am a student at HELP University. I am currently finishing my first year in the Bachelor of Business.
HELP University has made me feel like home. I start my classes early in the morning. Sometimes I have to wait between one class and another. So I like to bring my laptop and enjoy the different facilities made available to students at HELP University to relax, study or just chill with my laptop.
Students and mates approach me quite often; curious about where I come from and if I’m enjoying Malaysia. I find students at HELP University very friendly. In fact I have made a good number of friends already.
I like how HELP University encourages the local students to come and talk to the International students. This gives us international students a chance to practice our English and enables us to learn from the different cultures at HELP University and Malaysia.
Last semester I had my first marketing class with Mrs. Liew. She was the best lecturer I’ve had. She made my interest for marketing grow even more. Other than her, HELP University’s lecturers are very friendly and helpful.
From this course at HELP University, I have learnt how to think more like a businesswoman. I have been learning so much from the amazing lecturers. I have been learning something new every day.
From the amazing courses in HELP University, I have come up with an idea to slowly start my own business. My passion in animals combined with the knowledge that I have acquired from HELP University has led me to start a small business called MyPaw.
MyPaw is a delivery of premium quality dog and cat food. I have spoken to students and lecturers at HELP University about this idea. They were very encouraging and managed to spur my interest in business. I can proudly say that HELP University “walks the talk”. They not only teach us but let us practice what is taught in a practical approach.
MyPaw is growing little by little. I have implemented what was taught in HELP University and I do feel that the progress is significant. I have created a Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/mypawmy/timeline). Thank you HELP University for making me a young entrepreneur.“
