Student Reviews

The second chance♥️🖇
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

My university is a very good university and its fields are very good, and I learned a lot from it in my field, but I did not have the opportunity to learn in the field that I wished for, so I applied for support. I hope to learn from the culture of others, develop myself, learn new things, and maintain mutual relations between countries. I hope to be a front for my country...

I am very smart. there's nothing i cannot do. investing in me is definitely worth it. i am very determined, hardworking and clever.
