The University of Warwick, Cardiff University
Food, space and society
I grew up in the town at the confluence of our country’s two largest rivers, in Mělník. I went to the local eight-year secondary school. The range of my extracurricular activities expanded as I went. I went to the Prague Student Summit in my sixth year, where I met young people of similar focus and thinking, and it expanded my horizons not only in terms of international relations. I participated in the Summit for the remaining two years as well.
Among other things, I volunteered at the Forum 2000 conference, organized the One World film festival run by People In Need in Mělník, and now I’m active in the pan-European “Be In” campaign aimed to promote the Youth in Action program among young people.
I successfully graduated from secondary school with straight A’s in 2011, and this helped me in admission to The University of Warwick in the UK. I had dreamed of going to study to the UK since my fourth year, but at the time I thought this was impracticable. But I moved step by step towards my dream, everything went well, and I’m flying to study in England in September. I am grateful to THE KELLNER FAMILY FOUNDATION for a great part of the fact that my dream has come true.
