Tell us about yourself.

I am Kamila, I am 22 and I come from Kazakhstan. I studied Political Science and International Relations at Nazarbayev University and I am currently enrolled in the 1-year MA program here at CEU. I have volunteered extensively throughout my undergrad which brought me the most exciting experiences in my life: met inspiring people, explored new countries and cultures and of course, it helped my personal and professional development.

Why do you enjoy participating in CEU’s Student Recruitment Internship Program?CEU’s Student Recruitment Internship Program facilitates my personal and professional growth, enhances my communication and management skills as well as provides me with first-hand work experience. I enjoy being a part of CEU’s Student Recruitment Team and see this as an opportunity to give back to the CEU community and share my CEU experience with prospective students.

What would you recommend to a prospective student? 

I’d recommend not being afraid of failing, constantly trying new things and exploring your true passion. In other words, be fearless, humble and never ever give up!

What makes CEU special for you?

CEU provides me with a feeling of being a part of a vibrant international community, plus day-to-day communication with experts in their fields and distinguished students from all over the world. We speak to each other, we learn from each other, we challenge each other.
