As a marketer I have a constant desire for discovery of new things and self-development. That is why I am a mentor and trainer (not just an assistant professor) and that is why I fell in love with the creative and abounding atmosphere provided by Simonyi BEDC. It is a labour of love for me to develop the motivated students’ skills and knowledge either by class or by other forums, platforms. Therefore I am very proud of my award of the most innovative marketing course of the 2017/2018 academic year at EMOK’s teaching methodology competition. “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney.

Already during my studies, I saw the future in the cooperation of universities and the corporate sector. Seeking for such opportunities, I’ve got to work as a research biologist first in England, and then received a Marie Curie Ph.D. fellowship to the Netherlands. During past hackathon events, both as a participant and mentor, I have experienced how inspirational and innovative it can be when young people coming from different fields of expertise are brainstorming and solving problems together. As the winner of EHMAthon 2018 hackathon, I am currently working with my international team to turn our idea into a start-up. With my experiences, I would like to motivate and mentor local talents and enthusiastic students to develop and implement their ideas.
In National Geographic, I was honored to publish a feature story as a twenty-five years old, even though, I never learned photography or journalism at school. As a consequence, few years later I could work with such great idols as Sir David Attenborough or Jane Goodall. So far I have received salaries for more than 10 distinct activities, for which I gained the knowledge I needed during self-training and mentoring. I can assure that successful lifestyle, positive thinking can be learned and accomplished. There is no chance to pay back everything what my mentors have done for me – they do not even expect it. The only way I’m pursuing their mission.

The 3 of us moved into a flat-office near Arany Janos square at the beginning of 2012 june. 7 years passed by and we are almost 100.
