“From my early childhood I was interested in China and the Chinese culture. What was a distant and slightly lunatic dream in a little Hungarian village of the ‘70s, became true in the early 90’s, when I first came to Shanghai as a student. Since than I end up here every decade: from 2004 I worked in Shanghai 5 years and now I came back as a mother. Grown up in a financially moderate family, I know from my own experience, that the only way to a better life is through learning. It is very much unfair if someone is deprived of the access to proper education. That’s why I chose Stepping Stones for volunteering.”
