What’s the one thing people should know about you?

Drawing attention to social injustices and addressing them is very important to me. In my professional future, I want to develop my skills in this field and work on projects that aim to counter these problems, both nationally and internationally.

Why did you choose your particular course of study?

International Relations enables me to acquire political knowledge in order to better analyze the contemporary interactions of culture and politics (and their problems).

What do you hope to gain from your time at CEU?

Studying IR will give me a comprehensive insight into a field that is still relatively new to me. I am also very impressed by the diversity of the CEU: You meet people with different backgrounds and interests - perfect for exciting conversations! And who doesn't love to chat with others?
