The Summer School at RWTH was a unique opportunity. It was a two-week program which provided me with academic knowledge, social experiences, intercultural exchanges, and an overview on current development technologies in Germany. This experience provided me with my first contact with a university outside my home country, and it was crucial to the development of my education.
