As an International Relations student at ADA University, I have been learning about different international institutions. However, specifically, during my exchange semester in Sciences Po Lille, France, I learned a lot about the strength of the European Union in promoting unity, peace, and tolerance. That’s when I started engaging in activities that are directly or indirectly related to the EU. I am the President of the local section of the Erasmus Student Network Azerbaijan; ESN ADA Baku. Furthermore, after national selections, I have been granted the opportunity to participate in a study visit to the European Parliament where I had a traineeship for a month. I have also attended conferences such as Model European Council, European Youth Parliament and Model United Nations. I have also been elected as the head of my cohort in ADA University Undergraduate Student Government. I also have peer-tutor and Conversation Club Leader experience. Before I was eligible for an internship because of my age, I volunteered in three international events and one national event such as the 1st European Games, Formula 1 Baku City Circuit, etc.
