“I remember the 4th edition students a lot, especially the ones who were at University of Lisbon. I will never forget Bagaram from Togo, who arrived later than usual carrying his guitar and huge bag with him; Lyazzat from Kazakhstan, extremely kind; Farah from Jordan who brought her little dog with her all the way from their home country, Maruf from Bangladesh who was so shy at the beginning; Sidra from Pakistan, always so interested in everything and super motivated; Wenhao from China always attentive, Kisa from Pakistan, etc. Some of the students from this cohort are now doing their PhDs here, and I am glad for it”.
