Fotini Kristuli and Susu Lassa
Accounting // Tirana, Albania
Political Science // Borno State, Nigeria
“I can talk to her
... says Fotini Kristuli about her best Manchester friend,
Susu Lassa. Theirs is an unlikely friendship, having grown
up 2,000 miles apart and more than 5,000 miles from
Manchester. But when they met here, they found they
were more alike than they were different.
They both love to eat. And cook. And dance. And they
love to go exploring together. They’ve ventured to
Indianapolis and Chicago and, next summer, plan to
travel together to Albania – Fotini’s home country.
They look forward to spending time in MU’s brand new
Intercultural Center, a meeting space where the entire
MU community can share global cultures and learn from
thought that coming here, wouldn’t find people who
would get me,” says Susu from Borno State, Nigeria, “but
… I found Fotini and she’s just become home to me.”
After graduation, Fotini says they’ll always keep in touch.
“I don’t think this is the kind of friendship you just lose …
would definitely say we’ll be friends for life.
