“Hello everyone! My name is Mohammad Bilal, I am 20 years old and I am studying in the Civil and Industrial Engineering Dept. of Sapienza University, master course in Transport System Engineering. I have been here since 1 year,  my second year in Italy has just started. Life here is awesome! The lifestyle is different compared to India, but I am enjoying it! The environment that university offers is amazing: I get the chance to meet so many people coming from all over the world, and is very nice to share different experiences. I like the fact that we often work in team, and in my course there are people from Latin America, Africa and Europe. I come from a small city in India and I am enjoying this new experience.  India is a mix where tradition and modernity coexist, here instead I can feel that modernity prevails. It is my first experience abroad, and I have chosen Italy because Sapienza University is one of the few where this course was available, plus it was well placed in the university ranking! In the future I hope to stay over here still for sometimes, and I am already looking for some good opportunities after this master. Apart from the language I am comfortable here, people are friendly, the environment is nice, once I arrived I got easily adjusted with my new life.  After all, I don’t really see differences among youth of different countries: young people all over the world are focused on the future! They are positive and concentrated on what is next, on a better future.”
