“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine

Who would have thought that I would get to travel to the other side of the world? No one. I was not good at anything and I took the risk on this, this exchange program, that literally just opened my eyes to beauty of diversity that the world is offering.

Now, not only do I am good with making friends and being outspoken, I am also getting good in making progress and learning more. Alhamdulillah.
