I remember the first time I walked into that Knowledge Station. A different world and expectation and that was very striking for me. The teachers who supported me during this trajectory were very important. I said to myself: ‘One day I will be a teacher too, teach everything I learned and pass it on to each student, because if I have the ability to learn, I also have the ability to develop and transform the life of each student here at the Knowledge Station
