ISP Scholarship Recipient Tereza Kaplanová ’10 is a public health specialist working at a World Health Organisation Polio Support Centre in Brazzaville, Democratic Republic of Congo. Tereza previously led a Médecins Sans Frontières mission in South Sudan following an impressive public health career in the United Kingdom.
Tereza holds an MPhil in Public Health from the University of Cambridge. She said of her time at ISP:
“ISP has really transformed me into an international citizen keen to tackle global challenges…Therefore, I would say that studying at ISP has enabled me to fully develop my potential and also made me realise two important things. First of all, besides my Czech identity, I developed an international one which was making me more and more curious and also connected to the world around. And second, I was grateful to ISP for the scholarship opportunity, and this strengthened my will to give back to society.”
