Virginia won the Buddy of the Year award at the Student Impact Awards in 2014. When it comes to her credentials, it’s best to speak to an expert. She was nominated by the new student she was matched with, Manpreet Johal, also a Law student, who said the following:
“When I first signed up to CityBuddies I was not sure who I was going to be paired with and I did not get my hopes up too much as I had applied late and people who applied early had already found their buddy. When I first met Virginia I was so happy and felt comfortable around her. She was so friendly, encouraging, thoughtful, and patient. She would answer all my questions and also give me guidance towards my studies. Virginia is a real friend to me, she would always make time for me. Having got to know Virginia I feel like I have built a great rapport and friendship with her.
“She has helped me settle in well at the University and has always been available whenever I needed a chat. I have enjoyed being friends with Virginia and I thank CityBuddies for pairing me with her. Virginia has always made time for me and she has always directed me along the way. She is always reachable whether it be by telephone, email or meeting up for a coffee. Virginia was my first friend at the University, and I could not have asked for a better buddy than her.”
