"The past 6 weeks have been by far the most interesting time in my life. I am thoroughly indebted to PROMYS 2019 to show me the way past the blinds of assumed knowledge in mathematics. PROMYS has taught me to be mathematically independent, how to clearly 'see' every mathematical statement and idea I put to use. This in turn also helps in clearly exploring the further depths of the subject without requiring external assistance.

Another virtue of this summer program was that it was collaborative and not competitive, hence PROMYS 2019 was a good picture of the actual research career in mathematics that we will have.

PROMYS 2019 has also helped me in improving my social skills and I am grateful for that. Now I have a big community of people who share the same interest as me. The PROMYS family is something I would always like to stay in touch with."
