In Shaninka students are delicate, inquisitive, indecently intelligent, open to new experience, with insatiable thirst for new knowledge and impressions, with an excellent sense of humor and, most importantly, with a feeling that their possibilities are unlimited! I am wondering if Shaninka attracted them or made them like that. But it is not important. For me, being lecturer, the most important thing is that it is incredibly interesting to work with the “local” students. I would like to share with them the most useful and important knowledge and skills available in the modern psychology. This also makes me strive to become better every day.
