" In August 2016 I embarked on my most challenging adventure so far, that pushes my mind to the max: I set my goal to obtain three bachelors in three years' time. In July 2019 I successfully completed this journey, as I obtained degrees in the fields of Philosophy, Cultural Studies and International Relations. I hope to inspire others to dream big and make the impossible possible "
