Yasir Al-Jumali is the Chairman of the Iraqi Students Association at TSMU. He is a fifth year student of the Faculty of Dentistry. He feels sad that in a few months he has to go back home. Many international and Ukrainian students will remember him as hospitable, friendly and always ready to help young man. It supports at any time, gives useful advice, is a skillful organizer. And he manages to do everything easily and unassumingly.


The young man is going to pass exams in TSMU and a very important exam in Iraq. If he does not pass these tests he will not be able to work as a dentist. Yasir Al-Jumali studies persistently, because he likes dentistry very much. He says that this profession always demands self- improvement and he is happy to see positive results of his work.


“To be Honest, I know that I will miss Ternopil and the university at home. Every year I spend my holidays in Iraq, but in a couple of days I get nostalgic and I want to come back here. I visited many cities in Ukraine – Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Odessa, Donetsk, Kyiv, but I could not stay more than a week in any of them. In Ternopil I feel free and peacefully, like at home. I have many friends here. At first I had only Iraqis friends, but now I have many Ukrainian friends whom I respect and care. I have the best lecturers in the world. I will do my best to keep in taught with my friends. I also have many friends among the students from other countries. I have found so many friends only due to my studying at this University,” Yasir Al-Jumali said.

The boy thinks that his presidency at the Association helped to get his act together, taught how to communicate with different people, to understand them better.
