My name is Sheliza Chandani , I’m a dental student at Universidade Fernando Pessoa, in Porto, Portugal. I was born in Toronto, Canada. I completed high school in Toronto and studied biology at Carleton University. Then I decided to study dentistry at Universidade Fernando Pessoa. What brought me so far to Porto was my passion for travelling and exploring. I also like playing basketball, golfing and singing. I’m a fun-friendly person who enjoys meeting new people and what’s the best way to meet new people from all around the world? Study abroad is definitely the best way!
