Michal Trnik's CV

The short story is that I did my BA in International Relations at Charles University in Prague, my MA in International Relations and European Studies at Central European University in Budapest and earned a Diploma in International Studies at SAIS Johns Hopkins in Bologna. As a student I also happened to spend a perspective-shaking semester at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. I have worked as a translator, student organization leader responsible for external relations and I also interned in a Washington-based NGO coping with democracy promotion through science. Among my most recent and until now the most exciting work experience belongs an internship for a Brussels-based lobbying office of a multinational energy company. If you are interested in a more comprehensive story you can find my curriculum vitae further below.
