Open Gate graduate

I was born in Říčany where I attended elementary school at the first level. Then I joined the first year (prima) of the Open Gate eight-year grammar school, winning a unique chance to complete my education with both the Czech school leaving exam and the International Baccalaureate. Having taken both exams offered me a broader view of the world and motivated me to study sustainable development abroad.

When I was a high-school student I was not sure what I wanted to do in the future, and so I tried out as many activities as possible in order to find out the right thing for me. I participated in the debating league, gave remedial classes to students in both academic subjects and swimming, and took part in and completed all the levels of The Duke of Edinburgh Award. Among other things I also spent a lot of time and effort travelling – my last big trip was a one-month volunteering project in India.
