- Tuleni, Namibia

"Five months, this was the amount of time that I stayed here at NDIHS. I had a great time. I just have to thank you- everybody:  my colleagues and teachers. 

During this time here, I had the opportunity to study in another country. I also got to know more about the French culture with our field trips and, of course, the fact that we are in France. I had the opportunity to know people from all parts of the world."
