Hi, my name is Naod Assayehegn Haile. I live in Asmara Eritrea, which is found in the horn of Africa. I am student in electrical and electronic engineering at Eritrea institute of technology (E.I.T). From high school I graduated with high school degree with 3.8 GPA. And get the opportunity to go to college. Now I am fourth year student taking the electrical and electronic engineering with cumulative GPA of 3.78 and losing hope at my dream. What I am saying is, ever since high school I always want study engineering in electronic and electrical and astronomical .But here in Eritrea we don’t have college for astronomy so I decided to go with electrical and electronic engineering.

Even I started it with GPA of 4.0.But after that the department was left without teachers and most of the time the whole country goes black down (no power at all).About the teachers we have only the graduate assistant, who passed the same way we are now and other courses, the head department told us it is up to us to cover it and about the exam they bring questions from the international universities or colleges like yours anyway I am so impressed with your questions. Even the graduate assistant all run away to the neighboring country like Ethiopia, Sudan because they get no salary. If we give comments about the condition of our department the only answer we get is none of your business. That is ok because they are teaching us for free using the people money.

Now I feel that I am wasting my time for nothing. If I left the college, I have no choice but to go to military. My friends left the collage when we were second year, but I watch them get suffered in the military, the
