HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIZMO aka MEL HAI
What a weird class. My tutor for Family Law seminar seems pretty weird. She’s reputed to be a very nice lecturer and she pays attention to international students a lot. She expressly stated in one of the lecture note, “ In the interest of fairness, we suggest that international students should be allowed to have first choice as to whether they wish to argue question 1 or question 2, and which issue in the question they would prefer to deal with”. Well, it sounds good to us but I personally think this is too much. I felt like I’m being treated as a second-class student and not treated as a normal University of Sheffield student. There were 4 Asians including me in my seminar today. She divided us equally into 4 other groups. And on each group, she expressly told everyone, “Hello, this is Leong (different name for different groups), ask him where is he from, and what is his background”. I felt so embarrassed. I felt that every question that my group member asked was made in pretence. The 3 other girls in my group asked me couple of questions but soon changed to another topic.
