Being a part of the exchange program financed and organized by the thematic network "Remapping the Global South" (funded by the DAAD) and the GSSC in Cologne was a great and pleasurable experience.

I fell in love with not only the city, but the people I met through the program. I have come to meet amazing people and find new lifelong friends through this. The city with its old charm calls me still, as I am at home.

As an academic experience, it was thought provoking and helpful in forging bonds that go beyond borders. To hear other academicians talk of their work and find similarities with them, was extremely helpful in thinking about my own project. I have taken some amazing memories with me, in hope, of making many more.
