So there’s a lot of intrinsic motivation instead of just extrinsic control in the German system. So I think it had a big influence on me because I always thought that education is in the way of learning because that was always my experience before going to Deutschland. But now, when I was in Deutschland, even for just a year, I saw that actually the educator’s role can be like a facilitator’s role instead of just cramming more and more standardized answers to students. So even today, when I start meetings, I sometimes say, so we’re going to start right on time, because I take pride in being punctual.
