I started to investigate the field of prosthesis in Russia and found a research group at Skoltech's Center for Neurobiology and Brain Restoration
that's doing something similar. I also learned about Motorica
— a Skolkovo resident company that makes prosthetics — and its collaboration with Skoltech. The more I read about them, the more excited I got. However, it wasn't an easy decision to terminate my medical path. Probably for a half of the year, I was in doubt.
I finally made up my mind after a Skoltech Open Doors event. When you visit Skoltech in person and see how many amazing and advanced studies are conducted at Skoltech, you realize you have
to be a part of them. And of course, the building— you already see yourself sitting there for hours and studying.
Something that struck me at the time is we had a quick tour through the building, and one of the Skoltech students told me that I should study there. Maybe that is a little bit trite, but I still remember that. What can I say? You feel that you have to be a part of Skoltech. And then, after three rounds of the application process, you become a Skoltechian.
