'I love bringing UK and international students together.'

Yuvini Hettiarachchi is a BA (Honours) Marketing Communications and Advertising student, originally from Sri Lanka. She is the founder of the Global Community student society.

‘We run regular events where we find out about different cultures – I’ve found that food is a particularly good way of bringing people together.’

‘When I came to Hallam from Sri Lanka, it didn’t take long to feel like I belonged. At my birthday party recently it was the most diverse group of friends you could imagine, with people from so many different cultures. There are students from over 100 countries here. It’s amazing that we’re together at Hallam, all in one place at the same time. I love it.’
