"Our TU Dublin Failte Isteach project has had a big impact on me. It's a fantastic mix of an educational and cultural exchange. I have loved engaging with such a culturally diverse group of people from all around the world. We learn a lot from our students, and in turn, we help them practice their English language skills whilst introducing them to our country and culture. It is also a great way for our student volunteers to meet new people who are also navigating their new lives in Ireland. We have created a lovely little community. It has even resulted in some new friendships between our students!! I'm very happy to be a part of this project."
