emliana mgayaI thank God for completing my Master studies in special needs education in Norway. My academic journey abroad began with Norwegian language studies from 2014 to 2015 followed by master studies from 2016 to 2017. I’m grateful to Sebastian Kolowa Memorial University (SEKOMU) who solicited this scholarship opportunity for me from the Norwegian government. Especially, I thank Queen Maud University College (QMUC) and Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. These institutions have moulded me academically and equipped me with in-depth knowledge and skills in the field of special education.

I look forward to start serving SEKOMU and society at large. The title of my thesis which I wrote under the guidance of Prof. Else Johansen Lyngseth and Prof. Arve Gunnestad is “Children with Language Impairment”. It focused on children with general language impairment which may occur as a result of other disabilities such as autism, ADHD and mental retardation. It will be a great pleasure to work with SEKOMU colleagues students when we start the new academic year in October 2017!
