I think I have two favorites, but first, I would like to visit the USA. It seems a little ironic that I work with American students on daily basis, but I’ve never been to the country they come from. But that’s not the only reason – New York, Los Angeles or the Grand Canyon and national parks are places I know only from movies and I would like see these places in person.
The other destination I would like to visit is Southeastern Asia, specifically Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, and so on. Asia, in general, represents for me a very different world, culture, and values.
These places may sometimes be difficult to understand, but I have always been fascinated, and one day I would like to take a backpack, some friends, and travel through these countries with such great history, gastronomy and culture.
For me, the biggest factor in being successful, in this case providing study abroad opportunities, is the ability for constant growth. This means trying to be better all the time, and continuing to improve, even if you are quite satisfied.
We are constantly inspired by new possibilities for the ECES program, and we use them in our own ways, for example new technologies or communication techniques for our students. I am working with people – students and professors – and their opinions are important, not only for me but for the university as well, because these are the precious ideas we need to consider in order to improve.
