“Learn in a cross-cultural environment”

“The quality of mentorship I received from my professors and various volunteer experiences had allowed me to learn and grow as an individual in a cross-cultural environment. I was able to cultivate skills necessary for professional and personal development, which motivated me to continue my studies abroad and fostered my growing interest in neuroscience research.”
