I would like to thank Dr. Entesar for one of the most wonderful opportunities in my life. I would like to continue to work on the intersection of engineering and medicine, so gaining experience in doing so has been very valuable. Especially the work at the UHS was interesting since I have very little opportunity to gain experience with the clinical side at my university. My stay also taught me a lot about Muslim and Arabic cultures, my views of which were mostly based on hearsay and prejudice, I now know. For example, I did not even realize there was a difference between Muslim and Arabic culture but viewed them almost as synonymous. Lastly, I have met some wonderful people here, and found that everyone is very friendly and welcoming. This includes my fellow IAESTE interns and the local committee, who were always very helpful, but also just fun to get to know, some of the students I met during my stay and of course my supervisors.
Last, but probably the most integral of all, I want to thank Dr. Entesar for inviting me here, providing me with probably the most interesting project I have worked on so far, and the supervision, advice, and support during my stay. Dr. Entesar allowed me to work very independently, which is something I appreciate, and it is of course also a very essential skill in my career and in life in general, yet Dr. Entesar also replied swiftly when I did have questions. It made me appreciate that Dr. Entesar was always willing to listen to my view on the project and how to proceed, and allowed me to feel like it was also my project, not just a job I do because I'm paid for it.
