In grades 11-12, I had incredibly improved qualities such as discipline and time management, which is very important in my student years, when you want to keep up everywhere. I passed all the final exams for A and A*, scored the maximum score on the UNT and entered the best university in Germany and the top (TOP-50) university of the world – the Technical University of Munich. Already in my second year I was hired by Allianz Insurance Company in the Investment Accounting department,” Angelina Bender shared.
