Looking back, these four days have been more than just the average summer school experience, rather, they have opened various new horizons for me whilst also giving me a wider understanding of my academic subjects and provided an excellent learning environment.

Two sessions that I’ll certainly reminisce about are Data Science and Entrepreneurship. Never have I ever sat glued to a zoom meeting for 2 consecutive hours, voraciously taken notes, and chuckled at the same time.
