What the fellow says:

"The research stint in Mexico has enriched my professional life, as it enabled me to build contacts and connections with various specialists in the field of bilingual intercultural education so that I could ponder my country’s education problems in order to devise inclusive education for indigenous peoples. To me personally, my stay in a country as richly diversified (socially, culturally and ecologically) as Mexico has therefore broadened my life horizons."
