I am Anastasiia from Ukraine. Currently getting my bachelor degree in the field of International Relations at the Vasyl' Stus Donetsk National University. Looking for more experience one year ago, I consciously chose Lithuania to study in, and here I am: exchange student of Mykolas Romeris University, Vilnius and intern at the NATO ENSEC COE.
It is my firm belief that in order to succeed you should go out of your comfort zone. So internship was the very kind of challenge I wanted to accept.
Must admit: I stumbled upon the great opportunity to learn useful information, work as a part of great team and invest in the prosperity and security of both my Motherland and world in general.
Centre teaches you the experience you are not able to find in any book and that's what I am extremely grateful for. So, go for it and remember: the best way to predict the future is to create it! That's what we are working for here!
I am Deividas, and hail from Lithuania. I am a bachelor student at the Vilnius University Institute of International Relations and Political Science, which is one of the reasons why I came to the NATO ENSEC COE.
In the Centre, as a Public Affairs intern, I am tasked with various communication and representation related projects, which include a multitude of interesting and novel spheres, like linguistics, protocol, military procedures and especially intricacies of geopolitical energy security. Thus the internship for me is an amazing opportunity to broaden my thinking and especially learn new skills that will help me in the future, since the practice that I get here is impossible to simply recreate in any academic environment.
Thus my goals are to learn as much as I can of the various activities of an international organization and further my knowledge in the field of Public Relations.
My name is Sergii Karasov. I am 25 years old. I am from Ukraine. In Lithuania I study International public law at Mykolas Romeris University. I graduated from Yaroslav the Wise National Law University (Kharkov, Ukraine) and received a master degree this year. As international law lawyer I understand that I help Ukraine through my work and knowledge received here at the NATO ENSEC COE.
My objectives are very clear. I want to contribute to the development of the relations between Ukraine and the Centre. I am ready to make all steps that are necessary to increase more closer cooperation between Ukraine and the Centre. The Table Top Exercise project of the Centre that I am currently working on is a good start for reaching my goals.
I am very pleased to stay in beautiful Vilnius. I hope that Ukraine and Lithuania will continue to maintain friendly relationships.
