K.Ammireddy is from Andhra Pradesh and he too had to fight a personnel battle—pain of being away from parents and friends. “Thankfully, there were many other students who were sailing in the same boat. We all became support to each other and now my list of friends has grown large,” says Ammireddy.
When he joined SCMS COCHIN, faculty and staff played a big role in making every student feel at home. “Since students hardly knew each other at that time, they were largely dependent on Staff and faculty. And believe me, we were never disappointed as our issues were always resolved,” tells Ammireddy.
The new environment requires Ammireddy to interact with his batch-mates, seniors, and staff members on regular basis. “This whole process has helped me improve my communication skills, and the level of my English proficiency has really gone up. I call this place a cultural hub, and there is so much you get to learn about different cultures and traditions of India. Armed with this knowledge and experience, we can survive anywhere in the world,” concludes Ammireddy with a smile on his face.
