              Going to an American university is very different compared to universities in Europe. I really enjoyed
               the passion everyone brings to the campus. Every professor and every advisor here gives their best
             to make your time at UC San Diego the most enjoyable you can have. Whenever you have a concern,
                   there is someone around to help you out with it. You get a general positive feeling from the first
                                       second you step on campus. I have two overarching goals in my academic life.
                First, I would like to soak in as many influences in regard to countries and cultures as possible. The
              United States was always on my bucket list of countries which I wanted to experience in more detail
             than just as a tourist. UC San Diego, which is located in one of the greatest cities in the country, gives
                                     you the perfect foundation to experience this wonderful country and its culture.
             Second, I am aiming for a career in business. With the high degree of experience every professor has,
                                 they not only taught me the academic side of each subject but also real-world skills
                                                                                    that will benefit me in my career.

                                        As I have an engineering education, I wanted to take finance and project management classes to develop
                                        my knowledge in Business. The Project Management with Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate helped me
                                        in a lot of diverse ways. First, I have been accepted in several companies who are amazed I have so much
                                        experience with the Green Belt project, being so young. It gives me knowledge and skills that will prove
                                        useful in my internship and in my career: diagnosing the existing situation, analytical skills, building efficient
                                        solutions to solve problems. It also teaches change management and how to communicate on this topic,
                                        which are key skills to be successful in any job.
