Akaki is a first-year International Relations student at Tbilisi State University. He chose the path of social and political sciences because he has always been interested in the ever-changing interaction of states and non-governmental organizations, particularly in politics and economics. Akaki actively edits Wikipedia to raise awareness of the conditions that the heritage sites in occupied territories and other parts of Georgia are in. He also helps young students at school to become editors and enrich Wikipedia. Akaki is learning Mandarin Chinese, as he thinks that the only way to make peace in the world is to form relationships with people all around the globe. He believes that the Young European Ambassadors initiative is going to be very beneficial for expanding his worldview and helping him become a more responsible citizen with a sense of leadership and determination.
