Winter School 2021 Alumnus

When applying for the Winter School, I never anticipated that I would benefit so much. It not only taught me how to sharpen my academic writing skills, but also enabled me to acquire a daily writing habit. It allowed me, as a non-native speaker, to embrace the challenges of English writing and also helped me, as a young scholar, to be mentally prepared for the challenges of academic life.
