I’m Viktória Pató I’m responsible for Irish vocational schools at European Training and Education Network. I graduated in science of public administration (BSc) and international public administration (MSc), now I’m a PhD student in Hungary. I speak English and Italian. During my university studies I’ve embraced every opportunity given by the European Union to train, practice, and study abroad, because my vision is that we can discover who we are, when we get out of our comfort zone and experience the world gaining information, intuitions, relations, we never had before. The whole world is in front of us, having intercultural experience is not a financial or legal question anymore. I like the project-thinking attitude, I do my best in my job, since I believe that everybody deserves the special treatment. Those students who go abroad for an internship will gain a one-in-a-lifetime experience, even if they only realise it later. For me Erasmus gave a huge advantage, a vision, courage, optimism and friends.

I can summarise the way how I see the world in one sentence; don’t waste your time, “be the change you wish to see in the world” [Gandhi].

“If you think you are too small to make a difference, you haven’t spent the night with a mosquito”

African proverb

The Erasmus+ program of the European Union is an exceptionally outstanding opportunity for youths to be able to explore both their inner world and the one surrounding us, and broaden both their opportunities and vision. I am happy to be part of a team that enables thousands of young European citizens coming from all kinds of socio-economic backgrounds to take their own future into their hands and transform their dreams into reality.

Please feel free to contact me, I will be more than delighted to help with any questions and requests!

“We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.”
