Where and what are you currently studying?
Currently I am a student of the Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics honours' bachelor programme at the University of Amsterdam.
What is student life like?
For me, university life has been a productive change of pace. I fell in love with the charming city of Amsterdam and am currently exploring what it has to offer in terms of new academic, professional and personal experiences. I am also very happy that I get to continue to dedicate time to some of my passions and long-running projects: for example, as a member of the UNICEF Student Team Amsterdam, I am carrying on my cooperation with UN Children's Fund which was initially started as a CAS project during my time at PBIS.
What profession are you thinking of working in?
I am looking to pursue a career in international law; I am also passionate about causes connected to quality of education and sustainability.
What did you like about studying at PBIS?
At PBIS I enjoyed the amount of support which was available to me, both inside and outside of the classroom. I was able to explore my interest and start some of my own ventures (such as the PBIS UNICEF Initiative) already in sixth form - while my years at PBIS were undeniably challenging, I always had someone to turn to if I needed support. In retrospect, I also appreciate the emphasis PBIS' curriculum put on critical thinking and learning independently, which I now see as a vitally valuable skill.
Are you in touch with your former PBIS classmates?
Yes! As most of us study at universities abroad, we cherish the times during summer and Christmas holidays we get to spend together back in Prague.
