  • Navindu Sachintha
    Student from Sri Lanka

    I participated in many students activities, such as cooking events which our Sri Lankan team placed 3rd, and Mexican party, ITMO night and so on. My time at ITMO was beautiful because local students helped me to see lots of places in the city and taught me lots of things about Russia. I'm feeling happy to study here.
