'At the UvA, I quickly realised that I was surrounded by bright, determined, and richly experienced classmates who have had just as much (if not more) to teach me as I have to share with them. And since the UvA provides a diverse, international classroom setting, I have had the unique opportunity to participate in discussions and debates about issues, such as ethnicity, gender, and migration, that have influenced and affected many of us differently in our various corners of the world.'
