Achmaa Vaanjilnorov's impression: The GUMP program was a very valuable experience for me. During this semester I was given a rare opportunity to share my thoughts about my future aspirations with my mentor, Milos Mladenovic. He was genuinely interested in who I was and what I wanted to do in life. His help in organizing my thoughts, priorities and possibilities, helped me to prepare myself for my future endeavors.
Boon Teck Ong's impression: During the GUMP program, I had the pleasure of being assigned as Milos's mentee. Throughout the program, he elaborated the benefits of pursuing higher education degree vs finding a job and greatly understood the dilemma I was facing in making my choice. Later I have been granted funding to pursue my master studies. This would have not been possible without the continious encouragement and support from my mentor.
