Open Gate graduate in 2010

I come from Slušovice, where I also went to the local elementary school for the first two years, before going to a language-focused school in Zlín. From there, I progressed to Zlín Lesní Čtvrť High School, and then in 2005 to the Open Gate eight-year grammar school.

During my studies, I focused on mathematics and biology. I was also active in debating, successfully representing Open Gate on both the domestic and international levels.

As part of the American university admission process, I took a three-week preparatory course for studies at universities in the U.S. at New York’s Columbia University, which undoubtedly helped my admission to that prestigious school afterwards. This is also where I have studied since 2010, thanks to the generous support of The Kellner Family Foundation, preparing for the medical field of psychiatry.
