Student resume

I come from small village in south Bohemia, but I moved to Prague before I started attending elementary school. From my studies in Prague, most significant were my 8 years at Johannes Kepler Grammar School, where I could thanks to school's wide range of optional subjects very soon start to specialize. Key experience for my further studies was scholarship at Winchester College, which I received in my sixth year.  At this very reputable institution I have decided that I want to study in Britain and that I want to read PPE, distinctly British course.

After successfully passing Maturita (leaving exam) I have enrolled University of Durham, starting in school year 2013/2014. After first year there I am more than satisfied with this university, situated in lovely old student town in North England. First year also made me aware of how difficult studying there is, also from financial point of view. But thanks to The Kellner Family Foundation, I can now start my second year less worried and I can focus on my academic pursuits more.
