Q. How did you hear about EMJMD WACOMA and why did you decide apply?

A. I found out about EMJMD during my undergraduate Erasmus study in Portugal, through some Portuguese colleagues. Given that my parents studied and worked abroad, while growing up I always had the desire to travel while studying. During my undergraduate degree in Oceanography, I had the chance to cooperate with Professionals in the field of Coastal Engineering and Management that caught my attention. Consequently, I decided to apply to WACOMA in order to acquire the appropriate knowledge and expertise in that area. Since WACOMA’s courses are organized not only by Professors, but also by Field Specialists and that the application was open to students from a wide range of Sciences, the eagerness to see myself into the WACOMA family grew.

Q. How did you hear about EMJMD WACOMA and why did you decide apply?

A. I got to know about WACOMA via a friend and colleague at the University of Cape Coast. He knew I was looking for an opportunity to pursue further study abroad since I have had all my education in Ghana. I decided to apply because I thought it will add extra knowledge to what I already had in the field of coastal management and introduce me to new areas in natural sciences that I did not have knowledge about.

Q. Please can you give a short comment on your experience during the 1st semester?

A. First semester was organized with lots of lectures and field trips which made me integrate quickly the WACOMA life. I was also amazed on the way that our team, soon became an international family.

Q. We would like to know about your expectations for the 3 semesters to come as a EMJMD WACOMA Student and your prospects in professional careers.

A. My expectation is to get trained by Professionals in the field of Coastal Management and gain hands-on experience. My goal is to start a career as a Coastal Manager with an effect on vulnerable coastal areas Worldwide and someday bring all that knowledge and implement sustainable strategies in Greece.
