After obtaining my first bachelor's degree, I wanted to continue what I had started. Latvia was within the countries I was considering for further education and living.
From all options, Latvia was the country that interested me mostly as it seemed to be closely related to nature, has an interesting culture, and a quiet and cosy atmosphere. Of all the universities of European countries, Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies was the only one that provided the study programme "Landscape Architecture and Planning" in English, and which had a great emphasis on life sciences.
I got the red diploma, although graduating with excellence was never my intention. I just did what I loved honestly and passionately.
