Jakub Gawkowski (HIST '19, Poland)

October 5, 2017

Jakub is studying at CEU this year, thanks to the CEU Alumni Scholarship.

In his own words:

Prior to CEU I attended the University of Silesia in Katowice, from which I graduated with the BA in art history, and the University of Warsaw.

As a journalist and art critic I write articles and conduct interviews from the intersection of cultural and social activities. I write about culture because I believe it can be used as a powerful tool for social change. For example: I participate in the drug policy reform movement by conducting interviews about the cultural background of the use of psychoactive substances.

At CEU I want to join a student community that is engaged with the university, to promote it and leave it a better place for future students.

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to all of those who have contributed to the Alumni Scholarship. Thank you, donors, for making this possible!
