The scholarship brought me closer to my career plans and encouraged me in my further development. It also makes me dream of the moment when I will be standing on the other side -- as a donor. I am deeply convinced that AUBG will help me find the right path to success and then I will be able to help other students make their dreams come true.

This recognition has great meaning to ABF and to me personally as I had the privilege of knowing Dimi Panitza. I know what he did to help found AUBG and to see its growth over the years. He recognized the value of civic engagement in support of democracy. Your education equipped you with the knowledge and skills to contribute to the word democracy with active participation.
