The real London

Alessio Cofone

I am originally from Calabria, a region in south Italy. At a young age, I moved with my family to north Italy, to a small town near Milan. Then at the age of 24, I decided to move to London, searching for new experiences and adventures and now I have been living here for over five years.

While I was doing my master’s at London Met, I balanced my time between study and work. I always found time to hang out with my friends and maintain a good social life. It helped me destress at times, especially when close to deadlines. I used to spend some time at The Rocket to relax my nerves and spend some time with my classmates.

I don’t have a particular passion in my life, but I have many interests. In the past two years, I have focused on developing my skills, with the support of my mentors and the abundant articles related to the digital marketing industry (which are accessible through the library) and attending several courses. I recently discovered yoga and I am realising the benefits of this practice, which has helped me centre my focus and wellbeing.

Professionally and personally speaking, I have constantly been driven by always doing better for my community, improving my skills and being human. There is always room for improvement somewhere and always people in need. Therefore, I believe that our acts of kindness as humans make all the difference.

"Before choosing London Met, I was considering different courses. London Met stood out to me because it was the university that offered a course suited to my needs and career path. I recommend prospective students to attend the open days, which give them the chance to exchange words with professors, current student ambassadors, and to get a peek of what to expect.

The day of my graduation at the Barbican Centre was my proudest moment. It wasn’t my first graduation and probably won’t be my last; I was proud of myself because I was able to graduate in a country I now call my second home, with the presence of my family from my native country. I will always remember that day.

I had a challenging and intense year. Often, I had to prioritise my studies over work and my social life. However, London Met represents an important step of my life as it enriched me professionally and developed my capabilities in adapting in any professional environment.

One of the most impressive things at London Met was the multicultural environment. In my class there were Italians, English students, Germans, Austrians, others from the United States of America, Indians and Africans… you name a nationality, London Met has it – it's an enriching experience to study in classes full of different backgrounds.
