Thanking the Team

It has been 9 months since I have had my viva. You are supposed to be afraid of a viva, right? In fact, it was a great meeting with 3 great people who made up the jury.

The thesis was accepted with minor corrections and recommended for publications in form of a book (after editing).

Today, I would like to thank my Team, without whom I would have never ever made it.
They were the ones who took most of my time , money and energy. But they were also the biggest inspiration.

So, here, from left to right, in order of appearence on the PhD journey:
– my husband Edgar, firmly holding the reins of our family enterprise;
– our horse Fizz, who gave me a sometimes bumpy but exciting ride through the PhD;
– our son, Ivan, whose name comes from the Greek Ioann, ‘a gift from God’, and so he is;
– and me…

Thank you, the Team! You are great!
