I was about to write an enthusiastic blog post about my first quarter (and 1/2) at UCLA. My first quarter as a PhD student. Then, I realized that there is way too much to say, too many things happened, too many unique and incredible people I met. So, I will simply let some images speaking by themselves.
The day I found my apt (an an amazing rommie), after weeks of struggling. Worst experience ever on planet? Being an international student, without a credit score, and have to rent and apt in LA.
The day I became part of my research team (Here me&Ashley went to visit JPL/NASA labs in Pasadena, LA)
Holiday Lunch with Fulbright Scholars – A view from the villa where the event was hosted.
First travel grant of my life. @IEEE conference on Big Data 2014, Washington DC
The fall, which all of the sudden surprised me with its colors, but never defeated California sun.
A very special (and Caribbean) Thanksgiving break
The sunset on Marina Del Ray, from a conference room, USC Institute of Information Science.
First American football match of my life. UCLA versus USC. Ashley’s dog is a passionate USC Trojans fan, as you can tell.
And, finally, a late saturday night with new friends from Greece and Argentina
