Message of hope; Mailbag.
I had an unpleasant feeling of isolation. I ventured out ofmy room and metmy neighbour, Ian from Newcastle. I had never been so pleased to hear a voice.
Shortly after I spoke to two American students and in parting they wished me the best luck with my studies. This really cheered me up.
As the day passed, I got to know more students. Many had interesting backgrounds and some had travelled thousands of miles. Relationships and friendships were beginning to forge and I was feeling quite at ease.
I found great comradeship among students and all were accepted irrespective of race, colour and creed.
The moral of the story is, in time of isolation and loneliness it is important not to get demoralised for people's help and friendship are never very far away.
