Here is an inspirational story of UWC Dilijan alumnus Workneh from Ethiopia, currently a student at Harvard University.
Back home he would work hard for paying for his education and to help his family. During his studies at UWC Dilijan he saved his pocket money and built a new house for his parents.
"I can feel a really huge change in me... This has been a great place where I could actually find myself. I became able to get all the ingredients which can motivate and influence in education. I am going to contribute to my country and to the globe as a whole. After coming here I am able to see the whole world in one glance. I can see people doing great things here - I could feel that energy and that motivation here", says Workneh.
