He believes that education is the most important factor in influencing the future of his country. Jarvin Mutatiina (1994) is from Uganda and he received the scholarship for his two-year Computing Science master's program. After completing his master’s degree, Jarvin wants to coordinate technological innovations and use research findings with Data Science at the forefront. Ethiopian Samuel Zinabu Sharew (1984) follows the master Theology & Religious Studies with a specialization in Religion, Conflict and Globalization. He wants to contribute the resolution of and maintain durable peace in his country and his region, the Horn of Africa. Indonesian Zakiatul Wildani (1994) follows the one-year master Econometrics, Operations Research and Actuarial Studies with a specialization in Actuarial Studies.
