The end of the Journey

It’s bittersweet to end this course that we have somewhat enjoyed. We might have joked about the early mornings, having to return to school bench after a weekend full of activities centered around family and friends, but that’s all it is – a joke.

We are all proud to have been able to members of this team and this is the time where CloudChasers wish you guys the very best!

A 16-year-old girl Greta Thunberg from Sweden has taken the internet and the world by storm.
