The Specialization opened new horizons for me as regards the profession, the people who work in it, the society in which it functions, and the surrounding cultures. I took care to apply the content I learned during my studies in my professional role and to experience the various practices. Thanks to my specialization today, I am more focused as a change agent - goal-oriented and working to create meaningful learning.
