More than a year later now, and as I am a few steps away from graduation, I can already perceive the impact of this experience. Not only did it allow me to finish my studies, but it also introduced me to new prospects I did not have in mind before.
Most importantly, it brought me closer to my vision of how I would be a meaningful participant in the building of the future Syria. The international atmosphere at my university and in Lisbon at large has also been an add value.
Eventually, I hope that in the near future, I would be able to translate the knowledge I have gotten here into an effective practice in Syria’s political life.
