Altyn is a first-year student of the American University of Central Asia. Here is her story.
“While the earth goes around, people get into troubles. That's when they need to consult a lawyer; I want to help those people. I want to be needed by them. The main reason I enrolled in the International and Business Law department is that I want to be a winner. Doing my job good so nobody could hurt my clients is my aim.
I believe that the process of protecting the rights of clients does not end by the result of the court. I hope that my consulting as a lawyer will not allow my clients let somebody impinge on their indisputable rights for freedom, opinion, and the freedom of speech. For achieving my aim I will become a professional, and I truly believe that AUCA has professors that will help me to become the person I want to.
Victory is a result of a long process with complications and solutions. I will work hard to achieve my goals. See the goal and go get it. It could be seen as idealistic, but it is not. The small win will make me more confident the next time. That will help me when I will get the biggest and important case in my life. I will look behind and see those victories and loses, which I hope will not stop me, and confidence will fill me.
Certainty is halfway to success for every professional. Being a student of the IBL department is the first step in achieving my aims. It would be an excellent start for my future life.
AUCA gives lots of opportunities to its students, one of which is a loan. I would like to take an opportunity and also apply for a Kiva loan. The loan will help me to cover my tuition fees.”
