Victoria Poltoratskaya (POLS '18, Russia)

October 5, 2017

Victoria is studying at CEU this year, thanks to the CEU Alumni Scholarship.

In her own words:

Before CEU I was active in academic and public projects related to political science. Last year my friends and I created the "Political Scientist Citizen "project, which aims to popularize political science in Russia. We hold open meetings and discussions with specialists in sociology, political science, international relations and economics, discussing the most important political events in Russia and the world.

I want to be a political scientist. For me it is crucial that the discipline serves people and is accessible to anyone without complicating our dialogues about social processes in the world.

I hope that among the alumni community I’ll find the same interested people eager to change the world and help others through social projects and the popularization of academic knowledge. Thank you very much to CEU's alumni donors for the opportunity to develop such projects and realize my dreams.
