– I chose Minerva University because it is one of the most selective universities in the world, as it accepts only 1% of all applicants. In addition, the university offers courses in 7 different countries over 4 years. Starting in San Francisco, I have the opportunity to take a semester in Taipei, Seoul, Hyderabad, Buenos Aires, Berlin, and London. Minerva University students intern at DISNEY, GOOGLE, and the popular K-pop company SM. I want to express my gratitude to my school and teachers who have contributed greatly to achieving such opportunities. And I wish my graduating classmates the best of luck,” says the young intellectual.
