Why does he volunteer for CEU?
I am an open-minded, expressive, and disciplined student and researcher who easily connects with the younger generations. I believe that the life chances and skills that I gained during my studies at CEU would help me better to find, converse, and persuade next generations to study or even work at CEU.
