Student of the Month: Eva Oláhová

Eva Oláhová is a business student from a small village near Bratislava in Slovakia. Her IT skills landed her an internship as a receptionist at a London IT firm as part of Erasmus+ and our Internship Programme. But it's her ambitious and positive approach to the project that has prompted us to name her our Student of the Month. We spoke to the 19-year-old about how the trip has shaped her plans for the future.
