“I have always been a firm believer that knowledge is the most divine trait of humans. Being able to transmit it has been my dream for a long time. That is why I joined the Student Advisors’ team, in hope I can make a contribution to everyone who wishes to extend their knowledge in a field as interesting and constructive as Philosophy. So, if you need advising, don't hesitate to ask. I would be more than happy to help! "×
Bojana Petrova is a senior from Macedonia, majoring in Political Science and International Relations and Psychology.
„Voter ignorance is spreading and it is becoming a real issue, that is why it is essential for students to understand the importance of decision making in politics. Luckily, courses like introduction to politics offer students the help to create their own philosophy which will make it easier for them to have a say in the decision-making process. On that account, I would be delighted to help any student who wants to get more familiar with the basic political concepts and ideologies.“
