What experiences make you a great ambassador?

During my time at Masaryk, I went through many ups and downs. These experiences give me the tools to support new students on their way through University.

Until now I received a lot of help from other students and friends. This feeling of support is what I want other students to benefit from, as well.

What advice would you give to new students?

It might sound obvious, but “Work-life balance” is really the key to achieving your goals. Studying long hours with no time for recreation and fun is certainly not the ideal formula for reaching your goals.

It´s not about how many hours you spend at your desk, but how effective they are. For me, it works better to study for short but productive periods, than long ineffective hours.

Long story short: Study hard but also take time for yourself.

What do you love most about Brno?

Definitely the many different coffee places! The variety of cafés and the high-quality coffee is something I haven't found in any other city so far.

I love to try out new spots and experience the different coffees throughout the city. Many also offer great breakfasts and for me, there is just nothing better than going for brunch with my friends.
