By Şükran Ceren Salalı, Value Communication Fellow
As a part of ValueArt+Com Project, I have also interviewed with international students who experience the city of Mainz by asking them the same question, what is the real value of communication, so as to learn their points of view. I would like to thank my friends for supporting this project.
I am very happy to meet them, like many other friends I have met here who made my stay a lot nicer while we were creating wonderful memories and experiencing the city of Mainz together.
