What is your goal in life?

To become an agent of change at the nexus of environmental policy and sustainable business driving forward circular and zero-carbon economies.

Why did you choose your particular course at CEU?

I chose the MESPOM program because learning from the expertise of three different universities throughout my program will help me to develop a truly global perspective on environmental problems and their solutions in policy and business.

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

A unique professional profile for my future career. Being immersed in CEU’s international and diverse community will also help me to grow as a person and provide long-lasting friendships.
