"Talking to Yale faculty after their talks helped me find my way into the world of complexity; their humbleness and willingness to communicate always astounded me."

"It’s been a whole week since our last day at YYGS and the experiences are still freshly ingrained in my mind. As I type, I feel the void – I miss those two weeks so much already. My short time at Yale with the most amazing and diverse people was truly inspiring.

From living in the Jonathan Edwards College, experiencing college life and its sense of community, to attending the multivariated seminars and lectures, I enjoyed every minute of it. Every time I got out of my dorm into the courtyard, common room, or library, there was always another person to talk to, a new culture to understand, and stories to be told. Seminars were stimulating as we engaged in lively discussions within our small groups. Sometimes, the topic involved Biotechnology and the movie X-Men. Other times, we talked about the Healthcare system and potential ways we could reform it to make it better. I was surprised by the sense of camaraderie that encompassed YYGS. Even in a rigorous academic setting, there was a collaborative and open atmosphere, stretching our potential further and further.

Everyone I’ve met at YYGS are amazing be it friends at the pool table or partners in the research group. Y’all are awe-inspiring (I might have picked up some Texan accent). Thanks to the program, I have so much more knowledge that invigorates me. Talking to Yale faculty after their talks helped me find my way into the world of complexity; their humbleness and willingness to communicate always astounded me. One of my most memorable lectures was the last one, given by Ted Wittenstein. I will never forget what I learned – keep my eyes open and just pursue my passions; worry about nothing else and life will just unfold.

Thank you everyone for such a memorable experience. I will never forget this and congratulations all! We will do great things in the world. No pressure."
