Milda Kaklauskaite (IR '17, Lithuania)
MIlda is studying at CEU this year, thanks to the supporters of the CEU Alumni Scholarship.
In her own words:
I graduated from Vilnius University Institute of International Relations and Political Science (IIRPS), and have been active in the non-governmental student organization RePublica, implementing youth projects and initiatives. After my BA studies, I moved to Romania and volunteered in poor and isolated Roma communities. After returning to Lithuania, I worked as an assistant to an MP in the Lithuanian Parliament, as well as a public relations agency project coordinator.
Given my experience, the decision to study at CEU came naturally; my MA will help me achieve academic and professional goals. The Alumni Scholarship allows me to immerse myself fully to my studies and academic life. I’m very grateful to the alumni donors, who gave me the opportunity to attend CEU and pursue my academic and professional goals.
