Otari (Otto) Kobakhidze (NATI ’17, Georgia)

November 4, 2016

Otto is studying at CEU this year, thanks to the supporters of the CEU Alumni Scholarship.

In his own words:

I graduated from Tbilisi State University with an MA in Psychological Anthropology and a BA in International Relations. Studying these relatively different fields equipped me with an interdisciplinary understanding of the world.

I’ve been involved with civic activism, have worked for the United Nations Association of Georgia’s integration program, and also volunteered to help international students at TSU feel integrated into Georgian society. Helping others to broaden their horizons is my passion.

Nationalism Studies at CEU will be a great step forward the academic career I’m looking forward to, and the knowledge I gain will help my work with ethnic and national minority integration in Georgia. I feel honored to receive the Alumni Scholarship; special thanks to all alumni donors who supported me to follow my dreams and goals here in Budapest.
