Students Testimonials - Why I joined and what I learned



    The slogan of the college is “let’s act”, and I’m very happy because I could do exactly that. And you, what are you waiting for?


    Adapting to CICD meant motivating students, communicating in a different language, and leaving the comfort of my old life.


    Most important of all for me: the acceptance that no one is perfect and the important thing is that you give the best of you.


    In CICD I had grown and changed a lot. I had to adapt, be tolerant, respect others and most importantly, be humble.


    CICD has been a great learning experience for me. I learned so much in these 2 years that it surprises even me how greatly I have changed.


    We could get a little piece of African reality as we went to our project. We could taste the bitterness of poverty and we were able to do our part making the world a better place to live.
