Emily Gyetvai is currently a student at Budapest Business School University of Applied Sciences, Hungary, where she is in her 4th semester of studying International Business Economics.
Emily comes from a small town high school in Salgótarján, where she had the chance to take part in everything from academic competitions to art projects and sports events. She tried herself out in every possible field until she found her interest in languages and then later in Economics. She has always been fascinated by different languages, nations, and cultures. Emily started studying several different foreign languages including English, German, Spanish, and Italian, and even took a short course in Hebrew and Esperanto. Her love for the English language resulted in her graduating from this subject two years earlier than usual.
Emily likes spending time with younger children. She always had this urge to help people and bring the best out of them.
“I think it is important how we treat young people because they are the next generation, they will soon be the leaders of our society and we must make sure they are on the right path. I often tutor kids because helping them and guiding them through problems to find a solution are sure great moments in life.” – Emily Gyetvai
Probably this is the reason why Emily volunteers so much. She likes to grab every opportunity to give back to her community. It can be organizing events, being a hostess, doing administration work, or just babysitting someone’s children. Besides that she enjoys spending her free time with family and friends – laughing and making good memories – or sitting down with a good book, and listening to music.
“I am very thankful for this opportunity to be a part of the amazing team of the Hungary Foundation and to see the incredible job they do to improve Hungarian-American relations. I believe I can grow a lot both personally and professionally by being here.” – Emily Gyetvai
