As part of her graduate studies, she interned at the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy also based in Germany. With the passion of study abroad instilled, Csilla pursued a summer school program at the University of Guadalajara in Mexico to broaden her Spanish language skills. Csilla completed another internship at the Embassy of Canada in Hungary as the Political and Public Affairs Intern where her interest in international education further developed.
