"How was my first semester at Heller? Wonderful, I think is the one word that could summarize the whole experience. Heller is quite diverse, quite deep, and complicated sometimes, but it's always an interesting place to learn, to interact, to reflect on our previous experiences and current knowledge. I think one of the most interesting things here in Heller is that most of the professors and students have hands-on experience, that allows them to give and to get real-life advice and knowledge. We can consider not just how theory interacts with practice, but also how social policies and health policies formed at the highest levels of our communities impacts the field and the lowest levels of our communities. I think there are something like 70 countries represented here at Heller. Every conversation, every interaction, I learn something new." --Ahmed Ghanem, MS student in Global Health Policy and Management, originally from Egypt.
