"Giving is the best communication"


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.

This opportunity is like receiving a bundle before start scaling the stairs of society.


I’m Hunor Barabás from Odorheiu Secuiesc. I’m a first year student at the University of Technology, doing Computer Science. I have a sister.


I: Tell us about yourself.

Hunor Barabár: In my spare time, when I had, I used to go to drama club, do baranta, edit videos or write programs for games. Now I’m studying because there’s enough to study. About myself: first of all I like to contradict and argue. Not because I’m rebellious, but it’s instinctive. Perhaps I should be a lawyer.

Another thing I like is singing.Oh, and acting, as well. Consequently, I might be high-minded and I don’t deny, there’s a chance for that. The worst I left for the end: I rarely say something without sarcasm. I get on people’s nerves.

I: During high school you got involved in numerous programmes. Tell us about these.

Hunor Barabás: Thanks to the drama club I could get an insight into people’s mind. Besides I belonged to somewhere. I felt sorry to leave that the most. Thanks to the baranta I got closer to the traditions and I’ve learnt how to use a few middle-age weapons. I might use the knowledge that I’ve gained here during a zombie apocalypse. I got to know a lot of people, as well. Some of them defeated me, though, as far as one can be defeated by the rules of this martial art. Furthermore, I participated in history contests with my friends. Since it wasn’t mandatory, I studied a lot, as I only like studying something that most of the people don’t know.

I: This is your first year at university. Why did you choose this university?

Hunor Barabás: After 4 difficult years of struggle my brain won against my heart. I’m doing Computer Science mainly, because it has loads of opportunities. I don’t beat around the bush, I would like to grow rich. Not because I want fancy car and big house as this is irrelevant. I’m greedy for power, so I will be able to play Lego with the world. It might sound wicked, but it makes sense in my head.

I: What are your expectations from the university, the university years and from yourself?

Hunor Barabás: I would like to study as much as I possibly can, and make as many friends and memories as possible. I expect from myself to learn to cook. Many times it would be very useful to be able to cook something spending only a few lei.

I: What is your dream? What will you become when you Grow Up?

Hunor Barabás: I have many dreams, but unfortunately there are different roads leading to them. My vision at the moment is that I’ll work for the NASA one day. I can imagine living my life by searching the future habitat of humanity within the concept of the Kepler project as the Earth cannot supply us until the eternity.

I: It’s the first time you’ve applied for the scholarship at our Foundation. What does this opportunity, the scholarship represent to you? In what regards will it be helpful?

Hunor Barabás: This opportunity is like receiving a bundle before start scaling the stairs of society. I feel that it’s filled with everything I need. Not necessarily reflecting to money, but the fact that I can take some weight off my mom’s shoulder.

I: Message for the foundation:

Hunor Barabás: Thank you very much for this opportunity. I’ll do my best in order not to waste it rather than use it for building the foundation of a blossoming future not forgetting where I started.




„I am grateful to the Foundation not only for helping me,but also for making me feel special because I became a member of the scholarship team.”


I am Imre Izabella, 16 years old. I learn philology at the Tamási Áron High School, in Odorheiu Secuiesc. I have a younger sister, she is 9 years old.

We learned from your introduction that you don’t have hobbies, but you really like to go to the field, would you talk about this?
Unfortunately, I don’t have a hobby, I regret it a little bit, but I really like to go to the field, because I have been doing this since my childhood. I went a lot with my family, especially with my father, mostly to do agricultural work, but in my free time we also went to the field or to the forest.

You really love animals, that’s why you would like to be a veterinarian. Where would you like to learn this profession?
I started to like animals, because we’ve always kept animals. I wanted to became a veterinarian since my childhood, but unfortunately I didn’t get into that I wanted to. Because of this my dream may not come true, but I still hope that somehow I will be able to realize it.

What does the volunteer work mean to you?
For me the volunteering means that we voluntarily help and thereby we learn a lot, such as integration, teamwork, unity.

What is your message to the Foundation?
The scholarship helped me in many things, it gave me a secure background. I am grateful to the Foundation not only for helping me, but also for making me feel special because I became a member of the scholarship team.
