In this subject we have been shown what we are really able to do if we want to. I never have imagined that I was able to be part of the creation of a project like the one we have developed and, let alone, that we would really could to help people.
I am so happy to have chosen this course that is totally different from the rest. It gives you the opportunity to make mistakes and learn from them, to test your limits, to work as a team, to be creative and original, to discover the world outside of books. The impact of this subject on the students and especially on me, it is very positive and necessary.
