Hi. My name is Clifton Rebello, from Mumbai, India, though I have spent the last 20 years in the heat of the UAE. I am a graduate student doing my Master’s in the School of Digital Sciences. This Fall will be my 3rd semester at KSU, and it has been an awesome experience so far. I did a tour of the campus prior to enrolling at Kent and have been lucky to make wonderful friends in this cosmopolitan environment. I am an avid sports person, playing and watching, and closely follow the Boston Celtics as well as Arsenal Football Club (London, UK). I also love outdoor activities like hiking, camping as well as taking one tank trips on weekends. I was lucky to have an ambassador assist me when I first joined Kent State, and it certainly helped make life easier in the initial few weeks on campus. He now counts as one of my best friends. I want to do the same for new joiners through the Global Ambassadors Program.

Tam Nguyen

Hi, my name is Tam and I'm a Fulbrighter from Vietnam. Currently, I'm doing my master's in Public Health and I have stayed in Kent for one year. I remembered when I first came to the U.S. last August, everything was so new and scared to me. I even lost in campus for several times. However, I'm so lucky to have many good friends, both international and American ones, who have helped me a lot. Thanks to them, I have experienced many new places, events, and have more friends. I understand how many challenges international students have to face both in daily and academic life and I know my life would be much different without friends in Kent. That is why I wanted to become a global ambassador, to be friend and support new international students to adapt and enjoy life here in Kent in general and as a student in Kent State University.
