About Adrianna study abroad project

What do you like in your study field? Have you an ideal job in mind?

I’m currently in the last year of my Bachelor’s degree, Linguistics for business. It’s a wonderful mix of management, languages and practical knowledge, which comes handy when you are a young person just starting your career. Thanks to a wide range of subjects and lessons, conducted by specialists from different backgrounds, I had a chance to discover which path I want to take from now. My dream is to become a manager and a leader – a person who uplifts others and incorporates the values of global citizenship into the business.

Where are you from and Where do you want to go?

I was born and raised in one of the biggest cities in Poland, Łódź. Although the name might look scary, I assure you that the city itself is worth every bit of effort that you put into pronouncing its name. Still, if I had to pick one thing it would be murals. It’s been nearly ten years now since the appearance of first installations and now there are plenty of paintings scattered through the whole city, made by talented people from all around the world. There is even a guided tour organised by our city, be sure to check it out if you ever come around!
I have traveled a lot in the past and I plan to visit even more places in the future. It was mostly through Europe and North Africa, only this summer I had an amazing opportunity to volunteer at a project for children in Greece. But a place that I truly want to visit is the Scandinavia. Honestly, I’m so in love with the countries located there – their culture, people and of course nature. No matter what the future brings I plan to spend there at least one summer, to wholly experience the place.

Adrianna speaks 3 languages Polish, English, and French. She already has been contacted by 3 institutions on HigherEdMe and has accepted to continue further with one them. All the team wishes her good luck.

If you are a University, you can contact her trough HigherEdMe here: Adrianna’s profile

What are your hobbies, or any side activity you have?

I spent most of my free time doing the projects with students organizations that I’m part of – AIESEC and Enactus. Especially the second one proved pretty absorbing, with our project aimed at autistic children and their families. It gave me a lot of responsibilities, but also plenty of new opportunities. I’ve been a radio speaker, hold workshops in primary school, do some 3D modeling and graphic design – I guess that once the job needs to be done, it’s just best to do it yourself!

What is the one thing that makes you feel the proudest?

I guess it would be my openness, which shows in most things that I do. I just love participating in workshops, gaining new skills and learning, especially from other people. I’m very open to other perspectives, seeing the diversity as something that can bring us all a lot of good things. Then, I’m also open to challenges, as long as they are conducted according to “fair play” rules.

What do you like the most in your current University and what would you say to a university recruiter to pick you?

I really like the practical approach, which my university adopted when it comes to my studies. Meeting actual professionals, learning skills that are required by companies, having an obligatory internship.
I’m a solution-oriented, motivated person seeking the best path to achieve my goals. I’m positive that both during my studies and after their end, the university will be proud to name me one of their students and later graduates.

If you can go abroad with a friend?

Weronika, We’ve been friends for nearly half of my life, starting as pretty awkward kids and slowly becoming young women, that we are today. There is no doubt that we both shaped each other, helping one another during hard times and laughing over silly things. I’d be more than happy to have her support during another important event in my life – choosing a Master and then getting the diploma is definitely a big thing after all!

Interview with Uma

About Uma study abroad project

What do you want to study and why?

I plan on studying English Language and Literature. I find what you can do with languages fascinating, and I definitely show my interest through writing, acting, and teaching. I enjoy breaking down a language and seeing how it really works, what native speakers take for granted, and why. I also work online for Bibo Global, an international tutoring company for English, and it’s inspired me to work towards a career in education.

Where are you from and where do you want to go?

I was born in Missouri, but my family is from Bosnia and Herzegovina. My parents moved to America after the Bosnian War, and that mindset of searching for more, for better, stayed with me throughout my childhood. I miss Missouri, but more than that, I miss my memories of Missouri, and the way I knew my town like the back of my hand. I’ve found those memories in Sarajevo, and I couldn’t feel more at home.
I love the sense of unity in Sarajevo; we have a joke, if you yell out for help in Bosnian, you’ll find help in five minutes, even if you’re in the Amazon. The culture and tradition around me every day keep my wonder alive.
If I do go anywhere, I’d want somewhere with a strong sense of community; in my opinion, that’s the most important thing a country can have.

Uma speaks English and Bosnian, she has just finished High School, she was in an international institution (Richmond Park International High School of Sarajevo). She is actually working as an English tutor online while waiting to start University.

Tell us more about you

What do you enjoy doing when you have spare time?

I love writing, and I compete in writing or more ‘general’ competitions on a regular basis. A love of writing and a love of books go hand-in-hand, and those who know me will never be surprised at the two or three books I carry around constantly– just in case I get bored.

Is there a personality trait about you that you are proud of?

My creativity has always been something I could be proud of.
Pride, for me, is a complicated emotion; my parents frequently remarked on how they shouldn’t feel proud when I succeeded at something. They were happy for me, but pride was dangerous. I did what I did myself, and I was to be proud, but not them.
I used to disagree with that. Now, I see that it was a way of protecting me. I taught myself what pride was, and how I was allowed to be proud of myself. I stopped allowing myself false modesty, and compliments from me come from somebody’s hard work.
I was always proud of my creativity and originality, how I was able to spin stories from nothing and invent whole worlds of my own. However, I value honesty and self-respect as much as I value creativity.

A message for the higher education institutions

If there is anything you’d like to say to Universities who will see your profile

One thing I can promise you, without the prize of grades and certificates, representation and awards; the one thing I can and am promising you now is that I am unforgettable, and I see the path I will make myself in the world.

If you can go abroad with a friend?

It would be Irfan. He has been my best friend for almost 3 years, and partner for the past 2… and he is the most intuitive, thoughtful, and wonderful person I have ever met. I don’t know what I’d do without him.

Interview with Lira

About Lira Spiro study abroad project

You wishes to study Law abroad, why?

Currently, I am in my first year of my master, studying Civil Law. I would like to continue studying the same subjects even abroad just to spot the differences and similarities between 2 legislation.
What I like about this school is the way it makes you think to react and turn the case upside down if you need to.

Where are you from and where do you want to go?

I am from Gjirokastra, Albania. It is a small city in the south of Albania protected from UNESCO because of its beauty and its history. I would like to visit Thailand or any other country in Asia or even in South Arabia because I have never been there

What do you enjoy doing when you have spare time?

Albania doesn’t offer a lot of amusement park but in my free time I like going out with my friends. Have a walk near the artificial lake or have a drink. I like outdoor activities especially playing basketball or just having a picnic

Is there a personality trait about you that you are proud of?

I would like to say that I am very friendly and a workaholic. If I do something that I like, I give my best in that and often I only take responsibilities in something that I know I won’t fail

About Evgeniya study abroad project

What do you want to study and why?

I’m currently studying in tourism and I would like to continue my education or to stay at another university. Meet new interesting people, expand my worldview

Where are you from and where do you want to go?

I’m from Ukraine, there are a lot of good people here, but they are heavy people. I would like to change this, especially in the student sphere.
I would like to study in the US most of all and if possible stay to live there in a small country house, because I want to practice my English and besides I really like the local country houses.

Tell us more about you

What do you enjoy doing when you have spare time?

My interests are archeology, architecture and all sorts of antiquities of history. I do knitting, a little dancing and singing.
My favorite architect is Antonio Gaudi. Most of his creations in Barcelona. I like architectural styles such as gothic and renaissance. In archeology, I’m most fond of the Ancient World, especially Egypt.

Is there a personality trait about you that you are proud of?

I am proud of my purposefulness. I like to help people, I have leadership abilities.
Now my skills aren’t used at all. In last year my university cooperated with one of the Czech universities, which had a program “migration of the population”. I wrote an article about my migration from Donbass, but it wasn’t published, or the article simply didn’t reach it. Anyway, now the university almost doesn’t give the opportunity to develop and study this direction. So I decided to look for myself.

It would be Alexander (Alex), he is my boyfriend. I spend all my free time with him. We have the same views on life and we both want to travel, learn something new. He’s a dreamer, like me.
