Five years ago I have made an important decision – to go to a Russian university. I have chosen Kazan Federal University. Since I grew up in a different country, my opinion was made up of articles and photos that I found on the Internet. I remember that the university impressed me with its history, achievements and diversity of programmes and opportunities to realize my potential.
I have learned two foreign languages and made a lot of friends
At that time KFU seemed to be so inaccessible to me. However, my dream came true, and I entered the specialty "International Relations". At first it was very hard: living in the different country, far from my family, different levels of education. I am grateful to the University for those unique professors who by their knowledge triggered a desire to know more. They inspired me to overcome all difficulties and move towards the goal.
During my study in KFU I have greatly broadened my horizons, learned two foreign languages, gained intercultural communication experience and made a lot of friends. KFU is not only university for me, but it is also a part of my history, a part of my personal evolution.
