She was born on 20 May 2004 in Pécs, currently she live in a small  town in Baranya. She is attending in the 11th grade of the six-grade Munkácsy Mihály High School in Kaposvár. This is where she met research and her future mentors, who showed her the beauty of research .

In her free time, she enjoys learning new things, playing with her dog and keeping in good contact with    her chameleon.

She was introduced to research in 2017, when she was in the seventh grade. Her first research looked at young people’s attitudes towards people with disabilities. With this research , she took part in a competition organised by the  school, where she earned 1st place.

She continued her previous research in her own school in 2018 but she took a slightly different approach. In addition to the school competition, she took part in the 4th Transdanubian Almond Tree Competition organised by the University of Kaposvár, where she was awarded 1st place in her section.

In the spring of 2019, she met this movement and participated in the essay contest with her essay “Young people’s attitudes towards people with disabilities – Attitude survey”, where she was awarded  the special prize .

In 2020, she participated in TUDOK with the research named “What brings a smile to your face? – A survey on young people’s happiness”, which awarded first prize. She also continued to participate in the essay contest, the school TDK and the Transdanubian Almond Tree Conference.

But one of the most exciting things for her was the opportunity to participate in the 35th National Scientific Student Conference (in the university OTDK), where she awarded a special prize in the Social Psychology II. section.

Always interested in medical sciences besides psychology, she completed her study on the prognostic role of D-Dimer in COVID-19 infection. She has participated in all the competitions mentioned so far. Besides those has also competed in the Scientific Poster Competition.

“It’s an incredible feeling to be part of such a movement, to meet so many people like me and yet they are so different. When I started my research I would never thought that  I would be part of something like this. So many friendships are made during the competitions and at the National Student Conference in Káptalanfüred. I learnt many things from my peers when listening to their presentations or when just sitting next to each other at a random lunch and talking about our topics. I found my place here.”
