English is the least I learned from Lydia.

She taught me freedom and critical thinking and gave me the ability to question, to be critical, to dare, and to imagine.

Without her I wouldn’t have the great international experience that shaped me in the last ten years.

Now, after the end of my PhD, I am standing in front of my future career choices and I am trying to answer the same questions she made me think about when I was still in high school.

Lydia was my passionate life coach ten years before I realized I might need one.
