José Manuel Osorio (MEDS ’18, Peru)

November 4, 2016

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

In his own words:

I graduated from Lima’s Pontifica Universidad Catolica with a BA and MA in Philosophy. I’ve also participated in the Erasmus Mundus program, in Bologna, Italy.

Throughout my life I’ve volunteered in my home city of Lima. I’ve found my passion in teaching students to think critically and use philosophy and philosophical concepts as tools for social and self-improvement in everyday life.

I believe that helping to open young students’ minds allows them to access their full potential, as learners and as future contributors. I will continue to look for meaningful ways to make a difference in education in Budapest, and once home my goal is to organize a CEU alumni chapter in Peru to promote the University’s values and recruit Latin American talent.

I am grateful to be chosen for the CEU Alumni scholarship and I am eager to contribute to CEU and its community.
