I decided to study law for the ideal I believe it seeks to achieve: justice for the vulnerable, the oppressed and those who have no voice. I believe in the power of mankind and wish nothing more than to be a part of it.

After I obtained my Master’s degree in International Law, I started two different activities. First, I was a Public International Law research and teaching assistant at the University of Geneva for Professor Marco Sassòli. Secondly, I pursued an internship in the Human Rights Division of TRIAL, a Swiss NGO. From July 2014 to June 2015, I worked full-time as a junior legal advisor at TRIAL’s Investigations and Criminal Law Division.

Thanks to the generous support of the Zdenek and Bakala Foundation, I will start an LL.M. in international legal studies at New York University – top-ranked for Public International Law – in Fall 2015. After completing the LL.M. degree, I wish to sit for the New York bar. Regarding the more distant future, I will retain what the representatives of the Foundation taught me: “As for the future, (my) task is not to foresee it, but to enable it” (Antoine de Saint-Exupery).
