The Roma Graduate Preparation Program contributed to my intellectual growth and career development. The program, thanks to the excellent curricula, is a balanced mixture of academic English training and academic writing skills from which I am still benefiting greatly. Besides the academic preparation, the program supported me during my internship at the Embassy of the United States of America in Bratislava. At this point, I would like to take the liberty, to strongly encourage everyone who wishes to strenghten their academic abilities and (inter)personal skills to apply to RGPP, in one of the most beautiful cities around the world, Budapest. The RGPP experience changed my life completely and gave me more than a solid basis to pursue my education and career dreams. Now I am working towards bringing at least a small positive change at a socio-economic and political level for Roma.
