I received my third degree
I have successfully obtained my third diploma. In addition to my bachelor’s degree in German Studies, German with excellent grades, and my master’s degree in German Language, Literature and Culture with honors, I received a magna cum laude American degree in Communication with a minor in Journalism and New Media from McDaniel College Budapest, on May 20, 2022.
The Csányi Foundation offered me the opportunity to become a presidential fellowship grantee at the beginning of my academic studies in 2016, and in 2019 I became a full fellowship grantee and a member of the Nagybajom 1 group – which fills me with indescribable gratitude and pride. The Foundation has not only provided me with social support and study grants but has also given me the opportunity to build my career on an unshakable solid base. I can say with certainty that one of the most defining experiences of my life was the opportunity to complete my master’s degree and study at an American institution of higher education at the same time. Furthermore, my volunteer work not only allowed me to help the children develop and assist the mentors, but also allowed me to grow in many areas.
I would also like to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to all those who supported me in obtaining three degrees. I am grateful to the Foundation and especially to my mentor, Szilvia Némethné Bunovácz, to my parents, my spouse, and his family, and to my friends for standing by me all the way.
