"After almost a decade of university education, with three degrees, four languages and intercultural experience under my belt I got my "dream job". Two weeks into this job, I realised it was not for me. In an eight-month journey I learnt about others' understanding of a happy and content life - and questioned my own ideals.
Coming back... I wish someone had told me: your journey will be unpredictable and windy. And that is okay. "
"My passion for culture started at the age of three when I took up ballet. Though I replaced it with yoga after 13 years, this passion grew throughout the years. I completed my university studies in the field of International Relations focused on EU affairs and cultural policy and currently work in public administration organising year-long cultural seasons abroad. I strive to add creativity and a little sparkle to every day."

Nikolett and Eszter met while walking the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in northern Spain. It was immediately clear that we viewed the world similarly and shared the same values. We both grew up with the privilege of education and of engaging in international events, which opened our eyes to the problems our region still struggles with. Through Careers in the Common Good, which we developed with Krisztina Pjeczka, we seek to change the status quo and promote opportunities for the youth of Eastern and Central Europe. Since the inception of CCG, our mission has proven contagious: Alexandra and Tamzin both helped with the 2019 Summer Course (as workshop facilitator and logistical support, respectively) before joining the organiser team.
We are an international team, located in Budapest, Berlin and Aarhus. Our passion and inspiration unite us and keep us moving forward—and our experience with working remotely has uniquely positioned us to take CCG into the digital age.
