“Hello, my name is Gabriela. I’m a master student Applied Mathematics in Twente and I come from Indonesia. After finishing my bachelor degree in Indonesia, I became a mathematics teacher in an international school in Jakarta for about six years. The contemporary world, however, demands that we always apprise our skills and knowledge. So, after immersing myself in the workforce for a while, I decided it was time to ‘go back to school’, as a student.
Opportunely, through the Orange Tulip Scholarship (OTS) scheme, I was able to get a funding that covers the tuition fee and still have a generous amount left for the living cost."
