Departure day was filled with lots of reminiscing and tough goodbyes, but also with many promises of future travels across the globe. I extended an ever-open invitation to Canada, and assured my fellow participants that the west coast would be waiting. After a bittersweet morning, those of us continuing on to the CERN programme made our way to the station where we took the train to France.
It has truly been an unforgettable two weeks. The calibre of people, diversity, and science has exceeded all of my expectations. I feel so thankful to have experienced what I am now certain has been a once in a lifetime opportunity, and cannot wait to see what the CERN programme holds.
