Open Gate graduate in 2017
I come from Brno and joined Open Gate in 2009. The school opened a gate for me, behind which there is a wealth of opportunities. During my eight years at Open Gate I was able to fully focus on learning, developing my personality, volunteering and even playing basketball on a competition level. For this unique opportunity, I am deeply grateful to The Kellner Family Foundation, which supported me throughout my studies.
Ever since childhood I have dreamt of attending a university in the U.S. while playing basketball for the university. My dream has become reality. Since August 2017, I have been a student of Drew University in New Jersey and a proud representative of the school in the NCAA, the top university basketball league.
I will take a four-year Economics program at Drew. I will try to gain as much experience in the field as I can through both studying and working as an intern during my enrolment. It was also thanks to the support from The Kellner Family Foundation that I was able to make my dream a reality.
Open Gate Grammar and Elementary School, Czech Republic (2009-2017)
Drew University, U.S., Economics, beginning 2017
I want to earn a Master’s degree in my field and then use my experience and knowledge in my future job.
Travel, foreign languages, sports (basketball, swimming, jogging, bodybuilding), reading and getting to know new people.
