Deprived Slum Areas: Be The Change!

"The last months of my journey in our Master program have transformed me, fostering a newfound belief in the imperative to effect change. I now view situations not as predetermined destinies, but rather as opportunities to challenge the status quo and advocate for improved living conditions. My current research on a deprived slum area in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia fuelled my dedication and changed my mentality. For all this I want to thank and express my heartfelt gratefulness and admiration for the masters program, lecturers and my supervisor".
