"Diversity is the key to education. So it made sense to provoke myself into a new dimension. LSMU has taught me about the beauty of a new cultural scene as well as provided me with a substantial education for my future pharmacy career. I could never imagine living without the experiences I had in Kaunas, LSMU is definitely not one of my regrets." - Madeline Elsheikh
