Open Gate graduate in 2012
Thanks to the generous support from The Kellner Family Foundation, I was allowed to study at the prestigious Open Gate grammar school in Babice near Prague, from which I graduated successfully, taking both the Czech standard school-leaving exam and the International Baccalaureate. While a student, I pursued many activities within as well as outside of the school, for example at the Forum 2000 non-profit organization in Prague. Having completed an expedition to Romania’s Carpathian Mountains and demonstrated my improvements in sports, skills and volunteering over three years, I won the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.
My debate team regularly took the top positions as part of both Czech and English Debate Leagues, representing Open Gate. And it was debating that sparked my interest in economics and political science studies, since it taught me to view social problems from multiple angles. I expect my university studies in the UK to expand my horizons and allow me to work in the field of development economics.
