"Giving is the best communication"

I’m Annamária Vass I’m from Odorheiu Secuiesc and in this year I’m a graduate student at the Medical and Pharmacy University's General Medical specialization in Târgu Mureş.

You are a graduate student at the University of Medical and Pharmacy of Târgu Mureş. What experiences have you gained in recent years?

Of course, during the years here I had good and less good experiences too.  The main purpose of my stay was LEARNING: life and medicine. I think and experience that although both areas are inexhaustible, but I have gone a long way.

We have learned from you that you also have scientific work. Tell us about your experiences!

One of the deepest traces in me was the part-time training I had at the Surgical Clinic in Pécs. I was involved in the pulse of the class, and I attended specializations, visits and surgeries. This was the first time I could get scrub to a surgery as a member of the team, I was able to participate in various operations.

What are your plans for the future? How do you imagine yourself ten years later?

I would definitely like to practice my profession at home. I would like to become a good specialist. I am interested in surgical branches. Ten years later, I imagine myself as the wife of my loving husband, the mother of my children, the conscientious physician of my patients.

What is your most wonderful dream?

I would like to find the area that God really calls me where I can be, a peaceful, calmly balanced person.

Have you done volunteering? Why do you consider it important?

I volunteered several times in various camps that we organized for young people and kids. Volunteering is always an opportunity for building a relationship and getting acquainted.

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

I have a great deal of grace, and I'm very happy to do it. Provides financial safety. It woke me in desire, to help in similar ways.

Message to the Foundation:

I would like to thank and to wish the blessing of the God.


I’m Erika Erdélyi and I’m 16 years old. I live in Gyimesfelsőlok, I have two sisters, one of them is a two years old energy bomb and the other one is 24 years old, who supports me in everything. I study mathematics and informatics in Márton Áron high school, in Csíkszereda. On weekdays, I stay at my aunt’s place and I only go home on weekends.

What are your hobbies? What do you like to do in your free time? You’ve written, that you play handball, go to youth religious lessons, please talk about these.

I have been played handball even today, but not so often. Unfortunately I can’t go to religious lessons anymore because of my train schedule, but fortunately there is a group of faith in the school. I really like being part of this group, I got a lot of friends there with whom I could share anything and at the beginning I felt I had to belong somewhere.

By my new classmate i found a new hobby, which is nothing else, but wall climbing. In Csíkszereda is a small climbing room, we go there 1-2 times a week. I do not often leave home, so I need some exercise.

Your dream is to be an astronomer, why exactly an astronomer?

This is still my big dream, still attracting the unknown. With the new school, I got new opportunities too. On the first week I visited my geography teacher with the question if is any opportunity to deal with astronomy. I was happy to hear that the school has an astronomy group, led by a physics teacher, Bálint Péli. I visited him immediately and I’m still a member of the group. I’ve learnt a lot of new things. The best is, that I could explore the sky with a telescope, I could see the Moon, its craters and its line of terminators more closely. I'm getting a bigger "slice" from astronomy, so the dream is becoming more and more a goal

As you’ve written into your introduction: “once there will be my name in the history books next to Galileo Galilei and Stephen Hawking” – how do you want to receive this, do you already have a specific plan for that?

At the age of 16, did Newton know that he would create the basic laws of mechanics? Did Einstein know that he would be the father of relativity theories? No big scientist knew what they would achieve in life, nor did I know. I do not even know if I would receive my goal, but what I know is that I will do everything I can.

What means for you the volunteering?

In my introduction I’ve written as an example the Youth Meeting in Csíksomlyó, because of this event truly reflects the power of volunteering. This year I would like to be a volunteer, but unfortunately, I missed it. For me, volunteering is a symbol of selflessness, a little good among the many bad things.

In what helped you the scholarship?

The scholarship helped me to cover the half of the cost of the apartment, thus slightly lifting the burden from my parents' shoulders. I spent the rest of the scholarship on food and equipment, thus helping my parents.

Your message for the foundation

My message to the foundation is: what they do, is not just helping to people, but to shape the future as well. The future, is the young generation itself, with this support the foundation gives a chance for the youth to become a valuable member of society, to give more to the humanity, to create a more beautiful future. For me, the foundation is like a good fairy in the fairy tales, who helps you selflessly.

„I wish them all the best in the future, success in their field and I wish that they support as many people as possible who deserve it and need this help very much. :)”


Tell us about yourself, your family, siblings, and about your everyday life. What does one need to know about You?

I was born in Reghin. My parents got divorced when I was little. I live in Lupeni fo rabout 8 years. I have 5 brothers, but I live with only two of them since the other three live with my father in Hungary. I go to the “Tamási Áron” High school in Odorheiu Secuiesc, studying philology and I’m a senior. My stepfather works abroad currently, so I help my mother a lot at home.

In the introduction you wrote that you’re interested in the field of medicine or law. Why?

Now it’s clear that I’m more interested in the field of law. Ever since I was a child I liked films with action at law and hearing, the fact that you need to stand up in front of unknown people, as well as you need to defend someone. My dream is to become a successful lawyer in the near future.

Tell us about your hobby. What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time I usually help my mother. Besides I always make some time for my friends, as well, since they play a very important role in my life and I thank a lot to them. Sometimes I ride a bike or run, because I think everyone needs to do a bit of sports.

You also wrote that you find volunteering a very nice activity. Have you ever been a volunteer? (You said that you hadn’t. Has it changed since then?)

I’ve always found volunteering a nice activity, since the fact that someone gets involved in different programmes of their own free will is a very positive thing. Unfortunately I still haven’t taken part in volunteer programmes, although there were some events within my social circleand at school where I helped organizing.

It’s the second time you got the scholarship. How does it help you do your studies and in your everyday life?

The scholarship has largely contributed to my family’s budget that we used for commutation (season ticket) and for paying different things which I needed for school (exams, class budget, school equipment, etc.).

Your message for the Foundation

First of all I would like to say a big thank you to the Foundation for the support and for giving me the scholarship. I wish them all the best in the future, success in their field and I wish that they support as many people as possible who deserve it and need this help very much.
