What is the most important thing people should know about you?   

I’m attracted to projects that help make our world a better, kinder and sustainable place for everyone. From my experience: curiosity, persistence and empathy are a very underrated, but winning combination when it comes to bringing kindness and positive changes both intrapersonally and interpersonally. 

Why did you choose your particular course of study?

I felt that I needed a stronger 'upgrade' in order to protect human rights and marginalized groups globally.  At CEU, I will pursue Human Rights degree with a specialization in business and new technologies in order to reach positive social impact changes and human rights protection worldwide through policymaking, social and green entrepreneurship, media, and innovation.

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

I hope to advance my academic and research skills, gain lifetime friendships, and connect with the strong and impactful network and to collaborate with some of the world's brightest students and professors while enjoying every second of the multicultural experience which CEU offers.
