Altayesh is studying at CEU this year thanks to the supporters of the Alumni Scholarship, next|generation

In her own words:

I completed my undergraduate study in Law at Addis Ababa University in July 2014. My volunteer activities include women’s rights advocacy, youth and children empowerment and legal awareness among the general public.

In furthering my studies, I found very few institutions which would expose me to a multicultural environment while also offering a quality education. CEU was my top choice, where one can get first-hand information about various global issues and problems from individuals whose lives have been touched by those. In addition to the unique curriculum, the diversity of the students makes the CEU experience unique to other international universities.

I wish to extend my warmest appreciation to CEU’s alumni donors, through whose contribution we are in the path of achieving our goals and dreams. I am particularly grateful, as the scholarship allows me to fully concentrate on my studies, academic research and volunteering.
