September 26, 2018

Aline is from Damascus and is of Syrian and Armenian origin. Holding a BA in media and communication studies and a dual minor in politics and international law, Aline will pursue an MA in public policy at CEU with a development specialization.

What should people know about you?
The thing I love and value most is meeting new people. I love being introduced to different cultures, widening my circle and simply exploring!

Why did you choose your particular course of study at CEU?
Mainly because of my previous work experience with the United Nations Development Program. I believe public policy is essential for many things, especially change. To realize how much public policy instigates change makes the field all the more interesting and crucial.

What do you hope to gain from your time at CEU?
Besides knowledge and high-caliber education, I hope to meet new people. Being one of the most culturally diverse universities, I believe CEU has a lot to offer.
