I chose to study in American College because it is the best college in Cyprus. I decided to study Culinary Arts because I want to become a chef. After I finish my studies, I want to work in a restaurant. The course, which I liked most, is “Cyprus Cuisine” because I wanted to learn about Cyprus cuisine and because I like Cyprus cuisine a lot. I find Cyprus cuisine to be very healthy and very tasty. I am very happy and I feel very safe in Cyprus.”
