The story of mentorship: from surfing in Portugal to a book launch in Seattle

A couple of weeks ago, I was at a buzzing book launch party overlooking the city of Seattle, surrounded by some very accomplished people that flew in from all over the US. We were all there because we crossed paths with Janet Phan at some point of her journey. A journey of mentorship, growth and bringing more women into STEM fields.

What Connects the OECD and Mladá Boleslav? or My Experience from an Internship on Economic Migration

When I was filling in the application form for the database of the international organisation based in Paris this spring, I naturally tried not to let it slip that I speak French and I love working in an international environment. In the end I hardly used French during my four months working for the OECD, but I was able to participate in the carrying out of a project for the Czech government, which I would now like to share with you.

The combination of covid and bachelor's exams is not entirely funny

When it comes to my health, I am very careful and afraid of every disease. Thus, I have completely isolated myself from society and only had been meeting with a small number of acquaintances / family, since March 2020. My plan was simple – to not catch covid and get vaccinated as soon as possible. Since I studied online and also had my job online, I managed to avoid the infection quite well all year.

Origin of SARS-CoV-2

Welcome to another piece from the long saga of posts talking about COVID in one way or another - it just really is a topic that keeps on giving. In this volume of my thoughts about COVID, I would like to talk about a topic recently refloated by vigilant scientists and media - the Origin of SARS-CoV-2.

The “First” Exam Period at Cambridge

This year, for the first time, I had the opportunity to get a taste of the atmosphere of a real exam period at Cambridge. My impressions of this semester are mixed because, in addition to the huge academic strain, it was also one of the most balanced periods in terms of the balance between studying and socializing with classmates.

Once more, for the last time

Two boxes, suitcase, and a backpack. Four years in St Andrews packed into four pieces of luggage. Inside of them are mainly books but also posters, letters, dance shoes, a collection of seashells. Postcards, notes, newspaper cut outs. I’m bringing home hundreds of pages more than necessary, and yet hundreds of pages less than I’d want to. My last semester is defined by a gradual farewell.
