"When the time came to elaborate on the thesis, I was sure that it would be in a business environment. When this proposal was presented to me, I didn't hesitate. It was the best decision of my still small working life! It was fantastic. I immediately felt like family. And how lucky I was to be able to continue here!" Margarida Branco

"The last year of a master degree is seen, many times, as a year of rest, low workload and an “easy” good grade. Of the three, I got the “easy” good grade, that was achieved with a lot of work, but never with a lack of rest or feeling lost. When I applied to this theme, I had no idea of the meaning of around 90% of the words on it, yet with the support and the way people from LaC have received me, I have managed, in a little time, to learn and develop my thesis. I think it gets easier to be motivated when people welcome us with open arms and a bright smile.”  Bruno Cunha
