Aisha Bignall (Aisha Kandace)

From VIA University College Aarhus Denmark| studying at AUAS Faculty of Sports and Nutrition

My name is Aisha. I am from London UK, however living in Aarhus Denmark for 5.5 years. I started my professional bachelor in Global Nutrition & Health at VIA University College last September. After 8 years in a career in retail/fashion textiles, I decided for a career change in nutrition, which was an area of great interest in my personal life. I am most interested in basic nutrition, intercultural communication and food cultures, as I see myself working and creating projects with communities where nutrition advice is needed. I decided to study abroad for a few reasons 1) I wanted to learn in a different environment and learn new ways of working. Studying in Denmark is much different to studying in the UK, where I have faced many new exciting challenges. I believe studying in Amsterdam will only add to my catalogue of experiences of studying abroad, where I will be open to new insights of learning and meeting different people. I decided to study at AUAS for my exchange minor, simply because the course content is something that is of great interest and not taught at my home university, also I really wanted the experience of living in a great city like Amsterdam and to meet people from all corners of the globe.
