My experience at CSD has been invaluable to my career development. After a year of studying Public Policy, I was able to apply my knowledge and further develop my research skills. I investigated from different perspectives (economics, politics, energy, soft power) how great powers can influence and what their usual tools are.
The internship also gave me the opportunity to get to know Bulgaria and the Balkan region. To be honest, I did not know much about it, but after my stay at CSD I believe that the Balkan region is of great importance to understand the current geopolitical competition taking place in the world.
Finally, during my time at CSD I also helped the Communications team develop their new Twitter account and assist in organizing events. The experience was very fruitful and I definitely recommend it.
