“I just wanted to thank you for having me as an ambassador for the WoS program which is one of my amazing experiences.

I am so happy to know you and the program, which promotes the STEM culture and allows the young students to communicate with PhD researchers. The visits that I have gone [to] were so fantastic since I saw many students who were told to think, brainstorm, and conduct scientific research and finally try to present their investigation results professionally.

What amazed me the most was that this program made the students not afraid of failure and always trying to learn new things.

It was also a great opportunity for me to view my own research from a different aspect and to see if I could explain my complicated and challenging PhD topic into very simple words, so that the students could find it interesting. Once again, thank you for making me feel happy about this and I will be delighted to be a part of the program in 2019 and the following years.”
