Why is it important to you to write this testimony ?

What information you wish you had before leaving ?
I wish to confess that it was an extraordinary experience for me, in which I carried out several activities such as : the first tour of France in a wheelchair for a scientific purpose that is part of my studies (in May 2016), I was able to realize another challenge in April 2017 : participation in the EDHEC race, the first student sporting event in Europe, in which I acquired new things in the field of sailing, the concept of group sport.

There were not any particular things that got me angry except at first to fit in with the excess paperwork to provide when I arrived.
