Muybalikhon - Major: Earth and Environmental Sciences
At UCA, I have made many friends and connections from different parts of the world. The university also created good opportunities for us students to meet with new people who are studying and working in our selected fields.
As a student majoring in Earth and Environmental Sciences, field study helps me put into practice the concepts I have learned in lectures and seminars. The unique settings of both Naryn and Khorog campuses served as an exceptional field to study different types of rocks, minerals and soil. I was also able to observe the physical impacts of climate change on the mountainous environment, through rockfalls, avalanches and debris flows.
Summer and winter internships have also greatly enhanced my education experience. I have a better understanding of and can explain the main challenges that my own community faces: How climate change has influenced mountainous societies and how we can address these issues.
Despite its young age, UCA has created hundreds of local jobs, while the scholars and their students have been conducting research to helped improve the environment and well-being of the local community.
For me, UCA represents hope and faith in the future of my community and my country.
