I can learn from mistakes, too

Like the famous quote “Dreams don’t work unless you do”, I worked hard and I applied to reach my dream here at the University of Oulu - and got admitted for the Software System and Services Development in Global Environment Master’s Degree Program during September 2015.

My life here is more stunning than I expected. With accomplished academicians I am nurturing myself with the gift of knowledge and my contemporaries include highly experienced professionals from around the globe. I am experimenting everything what I learn as the university provides unique opportunity through its learning programs in such a way that I can learn from mistakes, too, rather than making them in my professional life. So for me this the place for education, networking, experimenting and finally making mistakes without regrets.

Being an IT professional from India I am always aware of the multicultural facet of the IT Industry. Here I live and dream in a global environment. I have friends from around the world.  This has helped me to master the skill of thinking globally.  Here we may not always speak the same language all the time but we have the magical power to understand each other as we are all one big family.

Oulu, capital of northern Scandinavia is a picturesque place with a lot of things to see and feel. I have seen many secrets of the nature. The moment I saw the spectacular Northern lights I realised that the saying “Lights will lead you home” is true. This country without fences has conquered me with its honest people and fresh air.
