Flor Maria Vargas Montoya moved from Colombia to Spain then from Spain to Scotland more than five years ago.
Flor Maria Vargas Montoya, HND Accounting graduate.
“In Colombia I had a small business and my life was wonderful but when I moved to Spain everything began to go wrong. Happily, when I arrived in Scotland things changed again but in a more positive way – I was able to study and work at the same time. I didn’t want to waste a minute of my life!
“I remember my first day at Dundee and Angus College so well. I joined the ESOL department to learn English at beginner level.”
Flor progressed to intermediate level then did a National Certificate in Business. Next she moved to Edinburgh to do an HNC in Accounting, returning to D&A College to do her HND.
“Along the way I have always had support from family and friends and I met marvellous teachers who made my life easier - some were strict but that was a good thing!
“It is a challenge to live without any relatives in a foreign country but now I have achieved my HND in Accounting I have two more goals – to finish my Accounting and Finance degree at Abertay University and to become a Chartered Accountant. In the future I would love to work as an accountant for an international firm.”
