What is your goal in life?  

I aspire to make a positive difference by advocating for justice, fairness, and peace through addressing global contemporary issues from a cross-cultural perspective with awareness of what is happening beyond national borders.  

Why did you choose your course of study? 

In addition to wanting to further advance my education, to be able to make a greater impact, I chose this particular course of study at CEU as it emphasizes the role of globalization and the importance of anticipating and tackling its evolving complexities. 

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

With CEU, I am confident that I, alongside my peers, will grow personally and professionally, all while obtaining practical and transferable skills to positively impact the world.
