"Giving is the best communication"

I’m Ágnes Bartalis-Fábián and I was born in Miercurea Ciuc/Csíkszereda. Currently, I’m a 4th-year student at the faculty of pharmacology at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Târgu Mureș.

When did you decide to become a pharmacist? Why did you choose this course?

I realized in 12th grade that the job of a pharmacist is the one that I could best fulfill. I also had other career options in mind, but I didn’t think any of them could have lasting results. Doing pharmacology is more than what most of us can think of when we hear this word.

You mentioned that you like looking toward the future and setting goals. What’s your biggest dream?

My biggest dream is to establish a stable and prosperous future where I can do what I enjoy for a living, while being near my family.

How do you picture yourself in 10 years?

At the age of 32, I see myself as being an established pharmacist. My family will expand and all of us will be healthy.

What does it mean for you to be one of our scholarship recipients? How does it help you?

For me, being a scholarship recipient is very motivating for me to achieve short-term dreams. It also helps with the expenses that living in another city brings. It’s a privilege and I can be part of a charity group that always has positive intentions.

Message for the foundation:

I’m very thankful to the foundation for making me a part of their family and helping me continue my studies.

My name is Zalán Szőke and I was born in Odorheiu Secuiesc/Székelyudvarhely. I’m an 11th grader at Dr Imre Palló Art School where I’m learning to play the violin.

You have been playing instruments since you were 6. Who and what motivated you to start playing?

When I was a child, I used to get bored of toys easily. To keep me busy, my parents gave me a violin, which I studied for a while. I couldn’t learn much by improvising melodies, so I had to learn in a different way.

We’ve been told that you participated in several competitions where you placed high and that you have also competed on the national level. Besides good results, what else have these competitions given you? What memories do you have from them?

Thinking back now, I can say that they offered me opportunities to gain more experience and to further develop my skills as a violinist because even if one can play a piece well, there’s always room for improvement.

We also found out about your interest in literature. You mentioned that you had written short stories. Where did you find inspiration to write them? If you were to tell the genre, what would you say?

I took topics from the everyday life and used them in my stories. I’d say they are written in the style of realism.

What does it mean for you to be one of our scholarship recipients? How does it help you?

For me, it’s a challenge to be a scholarship recipient. It helps me be determined and hard-working.

Message for the foundation:

Thank you once more! I’m really grateful for the scholarship.
I wish the foundation’s workers good health and strength, so they can give hope and opportunities to others, as well.

I was born in Odorheiu Secuiesc/Székelyudvarhely. Currently I live in Fântâna Brazilor/Fenyőkút. I’m a 12th grader at Károly Kós Vocational High School and studying economics. My motto is the following: ,, Don’t dream about life, but live your dreams!”

In your report we read that when you grown-up, you will become a stewardess. Where does this idea come from?

Indeed, this is one of my plans, since I very much like learning languages, conversing with people and traveling. This is where the idea of becoming a stewardess comes from. Apart from this, I have other career ideas as well.

You mentioned earlier that you had been volunteering in the hospital at the children’s ward. What experiences have you gained there?

I volunteered a few times. I think it’s a nice feeling to help someone for a sincere smile and a thank-you in return. This is when I can see that they truly need help, which might be material or even only a few encouraging words. I’m proud of myself, because I help selflessly.

What does it mean to you to be a scholarship recipient? How does it help you?

Being a scholarship recipient means getting a lot of help. It helps paying for the dorm and buying different books in order for me to prepare for the A level exams.
