Student resume

I’ve been living in Prague since I was born and grew up here in a family of musicians. I was interested in music my whole childhood more less. I started to focus on science during my studies at the grammar school Nad Alejí. I decided for Physics specifically at my first year when I also started to be interested in studying abroad. I was applying for an HMC scholarship that allowed me to study Bede’s Senior School, a private High School in Great Britain. 

Among other subjects Bede’s had an excellent math Instruction and during two-year preparation for the A-Level exams other fascinating opportunities have arised. I led the winning team of the National UK Space Design Competition and could participate in the International Finals at NASA KSC in Florida. My dream of pursuing world-class physics suddenly became more realistic and I applied to Oxford. I chose it not only for the quality of teaching but also because I want to be surrounded by people who share the same passion for revealing the secrets of our reality.  

I want to develop my knowledge in all directions and do what I do with 100 % percent of energy. I believe the University of Oxford is the perfect place for that.
