What is your goal in life?

My goal in life is yet to be set, perhaps never will be. However, I hope that I am someone who is constantly learning, caring, failing, thinking and loving, an ongoing process.

Why did you choose your course of study?

I chose to study at CEU because I am fascinated with the academics and professors at CEU and I wanted a place where I could be trained well to be an academic.

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

 I hope that I am able to reflect on my past thinking about things through discussions and learning with my peers and professors.
