Why I love MIT

Teaching is my passion and MIT gave me the opportunity to continue this passion of mine. 

I love MIT because I was welcomed here and was treated fairly in every aspect. I am given every opportunity to grow further and become successful at every step. I enjoy the multicultural environment at MIT where students and teachers all learn from each other. 

MIT provides a very safe and respectable environment for everyone.
