"I loved college, where I had the chance to meet some incredible people and, hopefully, some friends for the rest of my life. In addition, the quality of the course was higher than I expected and I had an incredible introduction to the world of finance. Even during the pandemic, I had the opportunity to get to know the river, which is an incredible city in a country that I hope to explore further in the future. "
