My stay in Kozminski University, Poland was a totally life-changing experience. This programme provides me an opportunity to live independently in a culturally different place that was unfamiliar to me. I am glad to expand friendship with people from other continents. I appreciate the European culture of being productive yet still try to balance life and enjoy every sunset.
