"My dear EMLE professors,

I'm writing you because I just came back home and I would like to say "thank you" for being part of the best experience of my life.

EMLE allowed me learn ideas that I had never thought before and made my brain touch its limits more than once, enhancing my knowledge each time.

Undoubtedly, you gave plenty of tools that I have to apply now in the case of my country to improve its development and the life of its people.

My best wishes,
Rocío Robles"
