Dr. Verestóy Attila Foundation

"Giving is the best communication"

I’m Rolland Kádár and I was born in Gheorgheni. I’m studying special education at the Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj Napoca.

Why did you decide to apply for the special education course of BBU?

The reason is that I have family members with special needs and because of them I had the chance to get an insight into this specialty.

How would you like to utilize the knowledge gained during this course?

Since most of the classes have a practical part, working with children and/or adults will be easier in the future.

What’s your biggest dream?

Establishing a center for people with special needs. Do movement development, hearing development, develop their creativity or hold speech therapy for them.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I spend time with my friends, watch a movie, listen to music or ride a bike. The very last one is really important to me.

We hear that you have done volunteering. Tell us about it!

In Cluj Napoca I have been a member of the Faith and Light group for about 2 years. There are adults with special needs and volunteers in this group. We converse with each other, play, sing and hold free time activities. Everyone learns something by the end of the day.

Why do you think volunteering is important nowadays?

It gives something unique that one cannot get from somewhere else. You have to try it out to know what it is.

What does it mean for you to be the scholar of the foundation? How does it help you?

It’s an honor and a big help for me in the everyday life.

Message for the foundation:

Thank you very much for the help! I’m very grateful to the foundation.

I’m Ervin Tanko. I was born in Odorheiu Secuiesc and I have grown up here. Currently I’m a first-year student at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of Babes-Bolyai University, doing Bank and Finances.

Why did you decide to apply for the Bank and Finances course of Babes-Bolyai University?

I anyway wanted to continue my studies in Hungarian. I thought that this field was the closest to me. During high school I could get an insight into the business world and mostly this influenced my decision. Anyone who does this course can fill in a variety of positions at a company, therefore I’m almost completely sure that without serious issues I will find a job that suits my degree.

What would you like to do after finishing your studies?

I don’t have a specific idea yet, but I’m sure I’d like to find a job at a private company. It would be great if it wasn’t a monotonous job, namely to have challenges every now and then.

What’s your biggest dream? How do you picture yourself in 10 years?

I have loads of dreams, smaller ones and bigger ones as well. I’m aiming to get a leadership position as soon as possible. I would like to be a determinative member of a company. If fate allowed, I’d also start my own business

What’s your hobby? What do you do in your free time?

I don’t really have a hobby, and I wouldn’t have time for it anyways because of my busy schedule at university. I rather engage with activities that don’t impose a big challenge, because I prefer resting in my free time. I also like spending time with family and friends; often listen to music, watch movies and do sports, as well.

Would you like to do volunteering some time? Why is helping important do you think?

Yes, I would like to be an active member of the society. I think that the only way a society can evolve and move forward is that its members help each other, and I would like to contribute to this myself.

What does it mean for you to be a scholar of the foundation? How does it help you?

It’s a great help when it comes to financial difficulties, as this amount of money covers most of my monthly expenses.

Message for the foundation:

Thank you for the support! There’s a lot of people that don’t continue their studies because they don’t have the necessary financial resources, that’s why I very much appreciate what the foundation does. I will try to return the help I’m getting as soon as possible.

Why have you decided to study geography at the university?

I decided to choose the geography, because I’m interested in the nature, nature conservation and the subject itself.

What do you want to do after completing the university?

After completing the university, I would like to learn some languages abroad and I’d like to make a cabin crew course to be a cabin crew. This is one of the reasons I chose geography.

What is your main dream? How do you imagine yourself in 10 years?

My main and closest goal is to complete the university, but beside these, I have many other little goals. It is difficult to imagine myself in 10 years, because my life can change very quickly, but if I think about it, I would like to be a cabin crew, but I also want kids. In any case, I imagine myself as a person who likes what she is doing, or if not, she is not afraid to change.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I like to read, watch movies, but if the weather is good, I take a trip, I spend time outside and of course I really like to be with my friends.

We found out about you, that you would like to take part in the El Camino pilgrimage. When did you decide this? Talk about this a bit more.

In any case, I would like to go to El Camino during my life, to experience a long pilgrimage as a pilgrim I wonder if I could invent myself in the toughest conditions, and thus to get closer to God and to think many things in my life. From El Camino I got information from a movie, read about it and it grabbed me.

Why volunteering and assistance is important nowadays?

I think the assistance is important nowadays, because I also experienced how good and helpful could be getting help from another person.  Today, I'm sorry that people are becoming more and more obsessed with each other, so it would be important for more people to volunteer and pass on something good and help. There are always and there will always be people who are in a worse position.

What does it mean to be a scholar of the Foundation? How does it help to you?

For me, being a scholar means being a member of a community. Get help and then pass it on. This scholarship is very helpful to me and once I want to support the Foundation.

Message to the Foundation:

 Thanks for the help, I learned how important volunteering is, and I plan to support the Foundation.
