“I know how difficult a PhD can be, and the problems that we have to face along the way, this year’s edition is addressing these difficulties. I attended the last PhD Day edition and I immediately felt I had to be part of the event the next year. Here I am now, as the head of the PR team which is working hard on letting the world know about this amazing and important event.”
