Aysha

 

1. 5 THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF?

I hold BA and MA from the Azerbaijani University of Languages, specializing in English language and literature. I have up to ten-year work experience, mainly in journalism and media. In the past four and half years, I worked as a monitoring journalist at BBC, covering developments in Azerbaijan and the South Caucasus region. I have been on attachments and trainings in several BBC offices, including Ukraine, UK and Georgia. After the closure of Baku office, I started working as a translator at a local telecom company for a short period of time before taking the scholarship opportunity offered by the University of Pannonia.

2. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE OUR PROGRAM?

I was excited about the possibility to be involved in the research work of iASK, which is a reputable and recognized think tank in Europe. I had done research work before and I believe I can become a valuable asset for the institute. Courses offered at the International Relations department at the University of Pannonia would also help me gain background in politics, law and in many other disciplines that are essential for being a highly-qualified journalist. I have been away from academia for a while and wanted to work on my education to grow and to strengthen myself. I decided to seize the opportunity to study in Hungary, which has high reputation for scholarships and education. I am grateful for this new chapter in my life.

3. WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU LIKE ABOUT KŐSZEG?

I love the cultural and intellectual environment in Kőszeg. The city is a valuable part of the Hungarian and European culture. I feel pretty much in the centre of Europe when I am in Kőszeg. The town has amazing medieval buildings and monuments that have remained intact in the course of history. Almost every building here has its own story. Kőszeg is a great place to focus on one’s studies, to explore the Hungarian culture, learn the local language. It also has hospitable residents who are willing to host you and do their best to help. The first time I arrived in Kőszeg, I lost my way to the university and was given a ride from the train station to the university by a total stranger. Another thing about Kőszeg is that it is very safe, probably the safest place I have seen in my life.

4. WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AFTER GRADUATION?

After graduation, I am planning to pursue a doctorate and I believe that the current research that I am part of will strengthen my research abilities. I also would like to become Hungary’s cultural “ambassador” to Azerbaijan when I go back home. Presently, very few Azerbaijanis know the Hungarian language and have only basic information about Hungary despite strong diplomatic ties that exist between our countries. I would like to fill in this gap in the future. I believe Hungarian classes offered at our university will help me in this department.

5. WHAT ARE YOUR LONG-TERM GOALS IN LIFE? WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 15-20 YEARS?

I see myself doing research as a professor in a university. I also see myself being involved in policy making in Azerbaijan, especially in terms of my country’s ties with the West and the European Union.
