"Giving is the best communication"

szocs_emoke_katalin

My name is Anita Imets and I was born in Miercurea Ciuc. I went to the Márton Áron High school and currently I’m studying Hungarian and German at the Faculty of Letters of Babeș-Bólyai University in Cluj Napoca. Despite the fact that I became fatherless quite early, I always tried to see the world in an optimistic way and to find alternatives. I have my relatives to thank for all the support that they've given me during hard times and helped me continue studying. I’m still looking for my path, but I feel that I’m in the right place.

 

You’re studying Hungarian and English at Babeș-Bólyai University. Why have you chosen it?

I realized in grammar school what a big impact literature has on people and how it can shape them. As I’m humane science-oriented, learning languages was also attractive to me and I always found interesting to have an insight into different cultures through learning their language. I’ve been learning German for a long time, that’s why I’ve chosen it as my minor and I would like to use it in the future either as a teacher or as a translator.

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

I would like to have a happy, balanced family environment in the future, because in my opinion this is important to live a harmonious life. Besides I would like to have a stable job and to belong to a community where I feel good.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I spend my free time reading or being in the nature, but the best if I can combine the two. Besides I like cooking and I’m fun of the theatre. Also I meet my friends a lot who help a lot during weekdays by making them more beautiful.

We found out that you like going to theatre. What kind of theatrical pieces do you like to watch? Do you have a favourite one?

I’m not very picky in terms of theatre performances. In my opinion watching bad ones also gives you something. From a critical point of view it’s worthwhile to watch them, hence I prefer going to theatre with someone, so after the performance we can share our opinions about what we have seen.

You’ve tried volunteering. Tell us about it!

I could try out volunteering within the RMDSZ. I helped at the press section in a congress, organized in the Erőss Zsolt stadium in Miercurea Ciuc. My task was to welcome the representatives of the press and to give them the necessary tools. I enjoyed myself and had nice company.

Why do you think it’s important to be a volunteer?

I think that we always need to complete tasks that at first sight don’t return profit for us, although after completing them we realize that they have indeed. One becomes richer, more experienced and a “better” person, as well. Last but not least it can help to build relationships and to open up new opportunities.

What does the scholarship mean to you?

It was an unbelievably big surprise to find out that I got the scholarship. This support helps a lot, mainly with covering everyday and monthly expenses.

Message for the foundation:

I’m very thankful to those who decided that I’m going to be one of the supported ones. The foundation’s mission has helped many lucky students so far and it’s a big privilege for me to be part of  it. I wish for many other students like me to get the same opportunities and amount of support that I got from the foundation. In the future I will also help the ones in need if I can.

My name is Mária-Magdolna Biró. I was born in Odorheiu Secuiesc on 3rd of July 1995. I currently live in Zetea with my mother, two sisters, my little brother and with my stepfather. I’m a second-year student at the Faculty of Pharmacy of University of Medicine and Pharmacy of TârguMureș.

 

Achieving your goals has defined your entire life and gave strength during hard times. Tell us about your dreams!

Now my biggest dream is to graduate from university and after a successful final exam be an independent pharmacist and be able to help people as much as I can. Apart from this I have lots of dreams as anyone else. I will also want to build a family and bring up the children together with my partner. Not least staying at home is very important to me. I would like to stay here and pick up a living so I can strengthen this society.

Why have you chosen pharmacy? What does it provide you?

For me this was always an option. I always very much liked chemistry and sciences. I was always impressed by chemistry, by the fact that two totally different substances make something new and special. I had been thinking to become a chemistry teacher or chemical engineer, but then I realized that for me pharmacy is the best choice since I can study not only what I like, but I will be able to help others, as well. I feel that I’ve made a good decision. I like what I do and despite the difficulties I try to keep up until the end.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my spare time I like getting together with my family and loved ones as much as possible. Besides I very much like reading and discover new things that I’d like to get to know.

Why is reading important to you? What’s your favourite book?

Reading is very important for me, since in my opinion all books have a soul, therefore each book is another world which depends on the reader’s imagination and that’s where it lives, as well. My favourite book is The Hunger Games. It’s about a girl who fights for her loved ones and tries to show a role model to the ones in trouble. Despite the fact that they force something on her, she tries to break out and make a better life for herself and her family.

A long time you’ve tried out volunteering. What does it mean to you? Why is it important?

In my opinion volunteering is a very important activity, gesture from people. It meant a lot to me. It was kind of a relief and made me very happy. Knowing that you do something good and expect nothing in return is indescribable.

It’s the first time you received the scholarship. What does this opportunity mean to you? How does it help?

This opportunity means a lot to me that every month I can rely on a certain amount of financial support, but perhaps the emotional part is worth even more. It’s a good feeling to know that someone trusts us and helps usachieve our goals and the fact that one day we can return this support is also very cheerful.

Message for the foundation:

I’d like to send the foundation a message that may God bless them all for their good soul, work and selfless help.

 

kozma_monika

I am Kozma Mónika, I was born on 21 september, 1995 in Odorheiu Secuiesc and I grew up in Zetelaka. I finished my high school studies in Odorheiu Secuiesc, at Tamási Áron High School, on specialization Mathematic-Informatic-English. Now I am a student at the West University of Timisoara, specialization Informatics.

K: Talk about yourself ...

Kozma Mónika: The folk dancing has been on of  my favorite free-time activities since my childhood. At the same time I always liked to surprise my loved ones with creative works.

During the years these were substituted more and more by the informatics, but I still practice them with pleasure.

 I have a lot of challenge behind me, so I had to grow up fast, but I try to approach things from the pozitive side.

K: Your love for handcrafting and dancing specify your life. Where comes this special bond to these arts come from?

Kozma Mónika: My mother has good sense to these things, I might inherited it from her. Beside this they supported me every time I wanted to create or dance. They let me to dance, to  go to performances and art camps. By dancing on Friday afternoons  I could forget about all the difficulties of the week and I just concentrated to the dance. I think, I have learned a lot by dancing.

The handcrafting teached me accuracy, precision and I realized that I can use these skills in many places, so I exercised both activities with pleasure.

K: Slowly your 2nd university year is ended... if we look at your love of handcrafts we can rightly ask that why Mathematic-Informatic speacialization?

Kozma Mónika: When I chose the university the main point of view was the further living. I only met with the informatics in the 9th class, but I was very happy when some of the programs I wrote seemed to work, so I wanted to learn more about it. I think that informatics has future and I hope I made a good choice. But I won’t give up the handcrafting, because I always have an occasion to make gifts, a kindness, with using the knowledge and experience I’ve collected during the years.

K: What do your expect from the university?

Kozma Mónika: I could try to use my knowledge at a company, and I found out, that the university is teaching us the basics of more branches of informatics which we have to improve after finisching  the university. I am waiting for the opportunities that can help me to realize which of my branches suits me, in which I can be good in a long term.

K: Talk about your goals. Where do you imagine yourself after 5 years?

Kozma Mónika: I’d like to evolve and learn more and more, to find a job easier. After the university I’d like to try myself in my homeland as a programmer. I’d like to help the person from whom I got the most care in my life, my mother.

K: What does the scholarship offer you?

Kozma Mónika: I think, the Foundation took me under its wings, and not only me, but my mother, too. The Foundation’s help and my mother’s persistent support ensure me going on my way, and perhaps at the end of it an easier living will wait for me, with more possibilities.

K: What is your message for the Foundation. 

Kozma Mónika: From the Foundation I’ve got faith, what I am very grateful for. I have to thank, that I’ve got the opportunity to finish my studies in better conditions. I hope my work will give results and I can repay your trust by helping someone who will need support.
