Create Your Own Path to Success
By: Ma’ali Hamza
My name is Ma’ali Hamza, and I'm an English Language and Literature student at An-Najah National University. I had a wonderful 6-months student exchange experience in Stavanger, Norway.
Aside from it being a dream that came true, travelling to Norway enriched my experience on both the practical and personal levels. I have seized every moment whilst my stay in Norway; I have made new friends from whom I have learned about the Norwegian culture, customs and lifestyle. I have also obtained a degree in Norwegian language. This experience has also set me on the right path to a brighter academic future.
Since I believe in the saying “Create your own path to success”, I, as well as my colleague students who have studied at Norway, decided to act a theatre performance at our university about our experience taking “Riders to the Sea” play as our graduation project. We performed well and the audience were impressed.
From what I have learned from my stay in Norway, I recommend students to seize these life-changing opportunities, never miss the experience of studying abroad and pass on what they have learned to our home country.
