My favorite subjects are biochemistry and technical chemistry. During these years at LUH, I learned a lot and met many friends, from Germany and from other countries. Here, I learned to solve problems on my own and without panicking, and I also learned to work in a group. I am very grateful that my university helped me grow up.
