“Lithuania is truly a great place to start your future, and if you have the right people around you – it is a gem,” says Lian Moussa, a 21-year-old girl from Egypt studying Renewable Energy Engineering at Kaunas University of Technology in an article published on Study in Lithuania.
While Lian was still living in Egypt, she remembers her dad talking a lot about how much he loved Lithuania and sharing his stories with the family. Moreover, when the time came to decide where Lian would be studying, her brother had already been looking and living in Lithuania for two years, which had a massive influence on her final decision.
Besides, Lian says that Lithuania was the only European country that offered her desired course at an affordable price.
From medicine to engineering
Lian has always wanted to study something that could help the world. One of her preferences for studies after high school was medicine, as she loved biology and thought that becoming a doctor was the only way she could contribute to the improvement of the world.
However, Lian soon understood that there is more than one way to help the world and decided to switch her desired major to the field of renewable energy. After the second year of her studies, Lian is looking forward to getting more in-depth knowledge of the field. She is hoping for the best in the upcoming semesters as she is immensely enjoying Lithuania as a country.
“I love it in Lithuania; it’s so therapeutic with all its beautiful nature and beautiful, kind people everywhere,” says Moussa.
One of the things Lian expected from Lithuania before arriving here was the cold, and she says she got to experience it for sure. Yet, something the student from Egypt did not expect was that, as she mostly noticed, many people do not enjoy the sun. It surprised her, as back home everyone loves the sun.
“Even though we look like a burnt chicken nugget after staying in the sun for too long, we still love it very much,” says Lian with a smile.
