Quote: “The bedrock of my attitude in regards to pursuing more and more was significantly strengthened by the Széll Kálmán Public Policy Fellowship in DC. The new environment that I was seeking suddenly appeared at the right time in my life and motivated me to reach new heights. Meeting the requirements of my university at home in line with the recognition of outstanding performance by the program showed me it is all about willpower. The personal bonds I established in DC only deepened this belief. These valuable impulses keep pushing me even today by providing the confidence to do several things at the same time with everything I can give.“
