Field of study

Matematika a informatika

I was born in Bohemia but spent a large part of my life abroad. When I was in my second year of school, my family lived in Ireland and later in the UK, and then I lived and studied at an English school in Helsinki in my eighth and ninth years. I completed all of my secondary education back in Bohemia, and I started to miss foreign countries. And since several of my friends set out to study at Cambridge University, I decided to try as well.

Everything went well, so now I can go on to study informatics and sciences at Cambridge University, also thanks to support from The Kellner Family Foundation. I am looking forward to it, as I can now fully focus on subjects I enjoy and love for learning new things. I am also looking forward to Cambridge’s opportunities in terms of music, as I can play several musical instruments and love playing in music ensembles.
