’Why did I choose the hard way?’

Studying at ETH Zurich is challenging, and all students have their own personal hurdles to overcome. This short video series gives a somewhat different insight into everyday life as a student. It provides an account of students, their setbacks and how they dealt with them.

David Oort Alonso features in the fourth episode. He came to ETH Zurich after being awarded an ESOP scholarship. Although it looks like everything has gone according to his plans, he too has had to face challenges and learn to deal with rejection.
