Open Gate graduate in 2012

I was born in Prague and never left home, save for sports, until age 13. Given my family’s financial situation and the generous grant from the Educa Foundation, I obtained a place in one of the pilot classes of the Open Gate project in 2005. While the structure and goals of our school have changed somewhat over the years, we succeeded in completing our secondary education with both the Czech standard graduation exam and the International Baccalaureate (IB). The opportunities that Open Gate provided to us have allowed us to apply for studies at universities abroad, and I will start my studies in Politics and Economics at the University of York in the UK, with the kind contribution from The Kellner Family Foundation.
