I moved from Italy to attend The American University in Dubai and pursue a degree in Civil Engineering. It was difficult for me to leave behind my friends, family and the surroundings in which I felt safe and comfortable. What I expected to find in Dubai was the perfect environment for a university student majoring in civil engineering. What appeared in front of my eyes was the biggest construction site on Earth. For some people it might be annoying, for me that’s much more interesting than any TV show.
The university transformed my skills with numbers, my interest in construction, my creativity and my pathway into becoming a professional engineer, capable of designing new solutions and making my way through the world of business with confidence and competence.
