Nurkyz is a freshman in the International and Comparative Politics Program at the American University of Central Asia. She is applying for an 1,100 USD loan to support her studies. Here is her story:

Since my childhood I have always wanted to be a diplomat and to serve my country. My dreams are becoming a reality now that I have passed the AUCA entrance exam and spent two years of hard work studying and improving my English.

Why did I choose International and Comparative Politics at AUCA?
1) I firmly believe that I will use all of the knowledge, skills and bright ideas from my university classes to develop diplomatic relations between the Kyrgyz Republic and other countries.
2) I am a very sociable person by nature, and I always try to find something in common with different types of people. I love working with people, and I hope to travel and work around the world studying the traditions, customs, and languages of different people.
3) Roza Otunbaeva and Chingiz Aitmatov are my idols. Their tremendous contribution towards the development of Kyrgyz diplomatic affairs makes me want to be a diplomat, and I hope to have the same influence that they did.

I am absolutely confident that I will be one of the well-known politicians or diplomats of Kyrgyzstan. The future of the country depends on our youth, and I believe that our young people will take the best practices and examples from around the world and use them to develop our country.

I also would like to thank my parents for their constant support. Thanks to them I could choose to study what I wanted.
