Q: Besides this award, what was your greatest achievement as a student?

Q: What is the most significant thing you have learned as a Bachelor in Law student? 
A: As for my greatest lesson, I guess it was to not be afraid of difficulties during hard times, to keep going and pursuing my dreams. 

Q: Tell us about a teacher / mentor who made an impact on you or set you on your present path.
A: It is very difficult to think of one specific teacher since they, more or less, all had an impact on me. As for my mentors, I would say my parents as they have always supported me.

Q: Do you have any advice for future students? 
A: What I would say to future students is to have perseverance and work hard to achieve your goals, despite some ups and downs that you may encounter. And to do so, I think the most important advice is to be passionate about your studies!
