Shalahuddin-Al-Ayubi Sitanggang, Indonesia

National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Moscow Engineering Physics Institute)

Russian people are amazing, warm and really kindhearted

My name is Shalahuddin-Al-Ayubi Sitanggang, I am from Indonesia. I am the first year student after finishing the Preparation faculty of MEPhI. Now I study nuclear physics and technologies.

Why I've choosen Russia but not another country? To me it’s like a new challenge. You have to adapt, to do some unexpected things. I have a plan to receive Master’s degree but it depends on the contract I will have with my country. May be I will work here or may be will come back to Indonesia.
When I came here for the first time it was really hard to me because I didn’t know Russian and here not everyone speak English. But later I saw that people here are amazing, warm and really kindhearted. Russians are perfect!

I live in dormitory with foreign friends – from China, Mongolia, Togo… We have different cultures and it’s great. Sometimes we have problems but we know that we are here to study, so we solve these problems.

Moscow is really beautiful. I walk around the city, visit parks – Tsaritsyno, Kolomenskoe, VDNH. I was at Arbat street – it’s an art place where people play music, paint. As a student I like doing sport, playing, walking around, sleeping, playing music, watching films and studying. Also I like festivals, I even played music at the international festival in MEPhI.
