What is your goal in life? 

I still need to answer it for myself! For now, I’m happy and thankful to be able to discover the world, learn new things, invest in self-development and the public good. 

Why did you choose your course of study? 

Because I’m dissatisfied with the current state of the human rights issues and to make a difference as a qualified human rights defender. 

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

I expect to plunge into the atmosphere of deep research, open debates, inspiring people, far-reaching projects and creative approach to challenges.
