When I arrived to Poland, I started looking for a university where I would like to study. I graduated from medical institute, so I wanted to connect my further education with medicine.
At first, when I heard cosmetology at AWF, it was very strange for me, because it is more sports university, but when I arrived and saw the campus, a huge green area, sports stadiums, I realized that this is the place where I can combine my love for medicine and sport.
At first it was hard, because learning in a new language, a new country, new people.
But now the Polish language has become my native language, the subjects are more and more interesting every year.
The students are incredibly close-knit and friendly, we do labs together in class, share grass lunches, and have a great time at student parties.
