Tiffany Epiphany

I had an epiphany. Around this same time last year, I was only a recently graduated high school senior in Nigeria and if someone told me that I would climb up to the top of the 516 feet Köln Cathedral in Germany, I would have laughed uncontrollably at the utter nonsense which I just heard. But here I was at the vantage point of this city in Germany, staring down in absolute awe from the top of the Köln cathedral, which is literally the embodiment of gothic excellence. That really hit me hard and at that point I was happy and grateful to realize how far I had come.

I am very big on food so I love to try new ones, and I tell you there is really amazing food there in Germany. We had Schnitzel, Spätzle, currywurst, doner kebab, eisbein and many others. My mouth is already watering just mentioning the names of these delicacies.

Studying engineering has never been so fun. First week we learned about trusses and when you get to know what they are, they are pretty much everywhere around us. Now all I do when I move around is look for zero force members. Thanks to Prof. De Rooy!

Still can’t believe I spent 6 weeks in Europe…best time of my life!
