Personal Statement

I recently graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in Linguistics and Management Studies. Now, I am studying towards an MA and Diploma in Translation. My academic career has allowed me to develop a variety of valuable skills to make studying more effective and fun. As an experienced tutor, I have been able to share those skills with more than thirty students across Europe to support them with exam preparation and University applications.

In my free time I manage the charity 'Art Relieves Poverty', an NGO which I founded in 2011, which supports education and artistic engagement for disadvantaged children in the Philippines (check it out on www.artrelievespoverty.com). I also enjoy creative writing, currently working on my first novel. As a freelance journalist, I regularly write for renowned national newspapers in Austria and Germany (eg Süddeutsche Zeitung).

Awards:

David Thompson Scholarship Award for a 1st in Linguistics at Homerton College, Cambridge University in 2013

1st Place Austrian National Philosophy Olympiad in 2011

1st Honourable Mention at the International Philosophy Olympiad in 2011

3rd Place National ‘Italian as a foreign language’ competition in 2010

1st Place ‘Josef Haslinger’ Creative Prose competition in Vienna in 2009
