Life at Melon
At Melon District we introduced the Resident Assistants position, residents appointed to help boost the communication between their fellow students and residents and the residence's management team. Here you can find out a little more about each of them, so you know who to speak to if you have any issues during your stay at the residence.
My experience at Melon District Marina has been very rewarding. It’s given me the chance to live in a space where I can study very comfortably, in part because the rooms are very well lit.
I like the diversity of cultures at the residence, as it gives me the opportunity to discover new things and make friends from different parts of the world, with whom I can enjoy exploring the city.
In my capacity as a Resident Assistant, I will offer commitment, initiative, good communication and teamwork with the rest of the RAs, so as to meet, connect with and help all of the residents assigned to me.
My hobbies include yoga.
If you live in one of the following rooms: MelonFlat C1, C2, C3, B1, B2, B3, feel free to contact me.
I consider myself an open, extroverted and very responsible person who is always interested in having new experiences.
Barcelona is traditionally an extremely welcoming city and I felt at home right away. However, I’m aware that the residence played a key role in my happiness throughout my stay in the city. It gives me that sense of security and confidence that my needs are going to be catered for.
Having studied in countries like Canada and Ireland and travelled to France, Italy and the US, I am always able to adapt quickly to different situations and personalities.
My English and French skills allow me to be totally confident that I won’t have any trouble communicating with other residents. I put them into practice every day during my studies and when playing sport. I’m a people person and I like working in a team.
My main hobbies are surfing, football and music.

I’m a responsible guy and am always committed to what I do. I think one of my most important qualities for being a Resident Assistant is my openness and sociability. I’m interested in discovering the world and new cultures, so it’s always a pleasure for me to talk to people from other countries and learn more about their lifestyle and culture.
I like to get involved and contribute new ideas to help improve day-to-day life together for all the residents. I speak 3 languages: English, Spanish and Catalan, and I enjoy playing sports.

I know how hard the first few days can be at the residence... At the welcome party I remember being all alone and surrounded by loads of people I didn’t know, but now a lot of them are my close friends. I spoke to a lot of people and in just a few days we had a big group and would go out to explore the city or make use of the Melon District facilities together.
I think it’s useful to have a designated person to talk to at the residence, who can tell reception about any issues you might have in your flat, particularly with the Cooking Lounge, or give you advice about what to do in certain scenarios, to make sure everything gets sorted out as soon as possible.
My hobbies include horse riding, climbing, running, chatting with friends over a coffee and generally getting to know people from different places and cultures.

When I first arrived I felt very homesick, the city seemed very big and I felt like it wasn’t the right place for me. But as I began to get to know other students at Melon District, I made a lot of close friends. I started to feel much better, we had formed a sort of community in which we all supported one another.
I’m a very sociable and organised person, and I’m always willing to learn something new. I like meeting people and making new friends. As a new Resident Assistant I’ll try to gain the trust of my fellow residents so they feel that can talk to me about any doubts, problems or suggestions. I think that by being open and communicating well, we can make sure residents know we’re there for them whatever they need.
My hobbies include travelling, skiing, food and handball.

I was born and raised in Bolivia until I turned 12 years old when I moved to Virginia, in the U.S., where I live since then.
I came to Barcelona to study a Master degree in the “Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals”. I am completely bilingual so I can easily communicate in both languages (Spanish / English) and I like to meet people from all the countries, to learn and share their customs.
I love being with my friends, and help people who had just arrived to Barcelona and is their first experience living away from home. I’m a fun, organized person who likes the respect between people living together.
One of my hobbies is football and I’m a big fan of FC Barcelona!

Hello! My name is Mercè and I’m from “El Vendrell” (Tarragona). I have 18 years old and I’m studying the first year of the degree of Business Administration at the University of Barcelona.
When I have free time I like to share it with my friends, reading or walking the streets of Barcelona, as it is my first year living here and there is still a lot to explore.
I decided to be Resident Assistant because I think it can be a very good experience and also because is a figure that can be very useful for students to express their doubts, or suggestions as well as being like a support to them.

I’m in an exchange program studying the fourth year of English studies at the University of Barcelona. However, my hometown is Avilés (Asturias) and I studied the first three years of the career at the University of Oviedo.
For me Barcelona is a unique cultural place where you can expand your own horizons about: music, theater, film, photography, food, sports, travel...
Since Melon District is a place where different cultures live together, I commit to do my work as a new resident assistant with enthusiasm and to use all the resources I can use. Furthermore, I am convinced that together we will create a great team.
My hobbies include languages, singing, theater and world cultures.
