Student resume

I was born in Kolín and lived in Prague until age four. My life took a turn for the better right after I arrived at the Korkyně private children’s home. At age fifteen, I was admitted to the OPEN GATE Grammar School, from which I graduated successfully.

The school allowed me to develop and improve on my hobbies, which include English. English was more than just a school subject for me. Thanks to 100% financial support from The Kellner Family Foundation, I can now fulfill my dream – which has always been to study at an international university. So here I am in Bath, UK, a beautiful historical town just perfect for studying history, savoring university life to the fullest.
