Tell us about yourself

I earned my bachelor’s degree in Political Science at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, where I was a member of the student government for three years. I believe that besides learning, being at university should mean being part of a community to enjoy the ups and survive the downs together and to turn these years into a wonderful experience.

Why do you enjoy participating in CEU’s Student Recruitment Internship Program?

I know how frightening and stressful the application process can be, but I also know what an amazing moment it is when you finally hold your admissions offer in your hands. I want to help future students to have courage and stamina throughout their journey to CEU and motivate them not to give up. Because the CEU experience is absolutely worth all the effort put into the application. 

What would you recommend to a prospective student?

Plan ahead and take your time. A successful application is rarely done in two days. Leave enough time for yourself to think about your ideas in order to present them in a clear and captivating way.

What makes CEU special for you?

CEU showed me that no idea is a crazy idea, and there are hardly any unfeasible goals. The fact that I can turn to faculty members as well as to my fellow students for both professional and emotional support makes my CEU experience truly special.
