It will be 28 days until my Ph.D. commencement. It had felt like a really long journey although in reality it’s on par with average length of study. I would never forget the excitement when I received my admission letter, and later my funding letter more than 4 years ago. After my Ph.D. defense back in November last year, I sat down for a talk with my advisor. I asked him what was the reason that made he decide to take me in as his student. His answer – I was very enthusiastic at the time and he just took a chance on me. As simple as that, a chance that changed my life forever.
