Hey, moi, привіт.
My name is Svitlana. I’m an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree student in Security and Cloud Computing from Ukraine. Just a year ago, I started my application process with a big hope to become an Aalto student, and I did. I clearly remember the moment of receiving the letter from Hogwarts (Aalto). I was speechless and delighted, my life was about to change, and this change was so exciting.
Then a long waiting for the residence permit, many bye-byes to friends and family, plane, and Finland. I arrived in Otaniemi and spotted students in their colorful overalls. I had no idea what the purpose of those, why they have many patches, but I was thrilled to learn and get mine.
Then a study year started. I meet my group mates, and from the very beginning, I felt a part of the community. Classes, study sessions, student organizations, new friends and memories, all I dreamed of.
Now I’ve been here for 6 months, and I can honestly say – I love this place. I couldn’t even wish for better student years. Even during pandemic times, everything is better than I expected. And the best is yet to come!
❤ Virtual hug ❤
