Thanks to You

I am extremely grateful for your donations towards my studies. As an international student, this means a lot to me as it opens many doors and opportunities each day I spend here at Augsburg. Most importantly, this gesture gives me motivation and inspiration to work hard in my day-to-day activities. Lastly, I strive to be someone successful and one day come back and do the same as you did for me. – Metti Gari ’20
