I was born in Hungary and after finishing my studies I moved to the UK.

I came to learn English (to prove my teachers wrong) and I thought after a couple of years I would be back in Hungary to study and work.

It’s been 12 years and I can’t imagine my life any different.

I have worked in hospitality most of the time and I have been working at ATTA® since 2015.
