Challenging the knowledge has no age

HydeHugo Santos,

I am a literature professor in Brazil and after completing 40 years of age, I’ve decided to come to United States and attend a PhD program. If a program of this importance is already quite challenging, it becomes even more challenging when it is done in a second language, especially if you are a Latin person. So, next time you see any international student before you, embrace him/her, praise him/her and exalt the fact that he/she has decided to do this. Imagine yourself doing a graduate program in a language that is not yours.
