Tashika Palipana, Sri Lanka

Kazan (Volga Region) Federal University

I came to Russia to fulfil my dream

My name is Tashika Palipana. I was born in Colombo, which is the capital of Sri Lanka. When I finished school, I wanted to study genetics. So I decided to come to Russia to fulfill my dream. Actually, when I was looking for universities I thought that Russia was the best chance for me because when I looked for scientific publications I always found Russian scientists doing it. So I applied for a government scholarship and I got it.

I had one year to study Russian at first. I can’t say that it was easy, but I think I got along with it. Now I’m doing well, I hope. I feel that in Kazan I have this potential; I have all the opportunities, not only in science, but cultural, social events, in everything.
