Judit Füstös was born on October 10, 2003, in Nagyatád, a small town in south-western Hungary.  She completed her secondary school studies with an emphasis on the humanities at Csokonai Vitéz Mihály Grammar School, where she was awarded a scholarship for her high grade point average and her achievements in various competitions. She first became acquainted with the Research Students Movement in 2018, when she participated in the TUDOK competition and presented her own research on her family tree, “My family has forged my good fortune: The story of Elek Verbulecz and his family in the 20th century”, with which she achieved several strong results: 2nd place at the Secondary School TDK and ÚNKP Conference hosted by the University of Szeged Faculty of Law, 1st place at the RKTDK competition organised by her school and 1st place at the 17th KutDiák Scholarly Essay Competition as well as reaching the Carpathian Basin final of the TUDOK competition. It has been important for her to get to know her roots and pass this knowledge on to future generations. In her free time, she enjoys doing sports, reading and travelling, and she has been playing the flute for six years. She took part in the 2021 Hungarian National Student Conference in Káptalanfüred, where she was elected Deputy Head of the Humanities and Social Sciences section.

In 2018, I became acquainted with the KutDiák Movement. I competed in TUDOK for two years. In the course of my research, I learned many new and interesting things. At the conference, I was also able to listen to lectures that aren’t my specialty, and I think I’ve made lifelong friendships. I was able to participate in the Student Conference in Káptalanfüred, where I could experience what a really good community is like. I am grateful to be a part of this Movement. “
