As Károly has exceptional writing skills, his main tasks at GEN focused on the field of media and communications, and drafting many blog posts and articles for the organization. One of his major accomplishments at ICD was establishing a weekly newsletter entitled ’International Cybersecurity Dialogue Briefing’ that remained an ongoing project even after the end of his internship.
Károly Gergely is an undergraduate studying Politics and History at the University of Manchester, United Kingdom. He attended online courses such as ‘Configuring the World: A Critical Political Approach’ and ‘The Art of Teaching History: A Global Conversation for Secondary Educators’ at the University of Leiden, Netherlands, and at Rice University, United Kingdom. He has excellent skills in journalism and writing.
As I was working directly with the head of the organization, Anne Bader, I got instant feedback from her, I saw that my work had a result, got out, was distributed as well as her appreciation of my contribution. Our weekly meetings were centered around two main topics: the news briefing and the transformation from a non-profit organization. These meetings were always extremely productive and I had a chance to get insight into the building of a new organization and to work with an incredibly prestigious expert. Her constant feedback was an immense help in excelling my work every week. – Károly Gergely
