International food evening at Kings Brighton

Former Kings Brighton student Solaleh Nasri shares how attending Kings Brighton's International Food evening made her feel welcomed as an international student.

One of the events that I really loved is International Food evening. It happened twice a year while I was studying at Kings Brighton.

All students from different countries and cultural backgrounds come together and share some of their local food and drinks with each other. This is a great chance for students to get to know different nations and cultures from all around the world.

In my case, I have personally felt very welcomed and valued as an international student as I was able to share my national dish with others. We all had a lovely time together. On that day, I prepared Iranian food with my friends, and we were able to introduce our cuisine to others, which improved our teamwork skills.

Our activities manager made sure that everything was organised, and all ingredient information and country’s flags were well-prepared on the tables at the canteen. This opportunity gave me a sense of belonging within the college community and promoted inclusion and support. If you are students in Kings reading this, I am wholeheartedly recommending you all to join these special activities in which they can exchange their culture as well as having an enjoyable time.
