I applied for the JPD because I wanted to become involved in EU diplomacy in the post-Soviet region as a logical evolution in my professional career. Before, I completed Russian studies in the US, volunteer for a year in a Russian orphanage, did a traineeship at the Spanish Embassy in Kazakhstan and wrote a master's thesis on Ukraine at the College of Europe.

When I got to know the EU’s Junior Professional in Delegations (JPD) program, I knew I had to apply. It seemed like a great opportunity for acquiring a first-hand experience into the workings of an EU Delegation and also for getting a better knowledge about the politics, history and culture of another part of the world.
