Lumen accipe et imperti - Receive the light and hand it on
I feel that I am so lucky to have come to this country and to have studied at this amazing school. I got accepted to the PhD program in Science at Australian National University – one of the most prestigious science degrees in Australia together with a scholarship. This is based totally on my results in New Zealand.
