It’s now half a year ago that you elected our photo contest winners of 2015. You may be curious what happened afterwards. We do not want to leave you alone with this curiosity and tell you what happened next. Our first winner – Najibullah Faizi – is preparing to undertake a master degree in Urban and Regional planning at Eastern Michigan University, starting this very fall semester.
Najibullah Faizi: “The award helped me more than I could think. I used it in developing my education and skills. As I had an application pending for a master degree in the United States, I used the award to prepare for the GRE (Graduate Record Examination) in order to apply for a Fulbright Scholarship. I spent a share of the award buying practice test software for the GRE to strengthen my skills and test taking strategies.
I would like to take the chance to thank the ESFI team which made this possible! Hope this program continues.”
