Why does he volunteer for CEU?
Through the opportunity I was blessed to receive from CEU, I have got two important things. The first is the knowldge I got from the amazing professors and from all the resources, like the library, online electronic materials; and second, which is equally life changing, is the opprtunity to meet friends from all over the world, cultural backgrounds etc. Since I was a scholarship student, I got all these for free. Being a volunteer is a way of paying my debt and also contributing to the effort to extend the opportunity I was fortunate and grateful to get to other students to come.
