Studying at LSE is a privilege that enables you to grow both professionally and personally. LSE is a school for high fliers, a place where people are selected on their merit, no matter where they come from. What attracted me to LSE apart from the skills I would develop here, and unlimited job and career opportunities, were the people; the opportunity to collaborate with students from different backgrounds, to be in the classrooms of world famous professors.

The LSE experience has broadened my horizons through exposure to different cultures, and I would say that LSE represents what multicultural Europe in the 21st century should be. I will never forget the feeling of community I shared with my fellow students. This programme is challenging and exciting. Although the primary aim was to produce theoretical accounts of what it means to be a European in the 21st Century, we also had interactions with EU decision-makers on a weekly basis. This is a very important aspect of the programme as you learn to incorporate the decision-maker's perspective into a theory.

Life at LSE has offered me opportunities in many extra-curricular activities. I chronicled for The Beaver student paper on Serbia's effort to rebuild after Milosevic. I also interviewed the Foreign Policy advisor to the Serbian president, Mr. Dusan Spasojevic. I came to LSE to learn, and today I am interested in producing knowledge. I am looking forward to being a part of the LSE community in the future by producing a PhD thesis at the European Institute.
