The University of Sheffield
My name is Le Thu Tran but everybody calls me “Miu”. Though I am an ethnic Vietnamese, I was born and raised in the Czech Republic. During my sixth year at the Budějovická grammar school in Prague I received a scholarship to study at Shrewsbury School, a boarding school in the UK, where I passed my A Levels. I currently study medicine at The University of Sheffield. Studying in the UK has shown me that you are truly capable of anything – you just have to try hard, not be afraid and most importantly, never give up. Thanks to my parents, I was able to travel and get to know diverse cultures from a very young age. This also motivated me to study abroad, which has given me a lot of new opportunities. Apart from natural sciences, I have always enjoyed learning languages. I can speak Czech, English, Vietnamese and German fluently and I started studying French in my first of university.

I want to become a successful medical graduate from The University of Sheffield. I have always wanted to combine natural sciences with a direct benefit for the society. Thanks to volunteering in homes for the elderly, I realised that what I enjoy the most is working with people, helping, calming and reassuring them, so I chose a career in medicine. This allows me to combine everything I am interested in, and I cannot wait to see where this path will take me in the future.
