Being involved in these events and projects also enabled me to meet senior academics in planning network, while bringing a level of recognition which also helped opening of new routes in my early carrier.

Now it is time to leave the coordination team but I will certainly continue to enjoy the professional networks, friendships, and experiences that I had developed through AESOP-YA.
