Good plan helps conquer the seemingly unconquerable
From an early age, my life has straddled Europe and the USA. When I was six years old, my parents decided to emigrate our family from the old Czechoslovakia, via Austria, to Miami, Florida and I continued having a foot on each of the two continents ever since. At one point of my studies, I even studied concurrently at the university in Miami and the law faculty in Prague!
When I graduated the Charles University in Prague, I went on studying law at USF School of Law in San Francisco. By then, I was alone in the USA and not only battled through my studies but also had to earn a living. I got the first job of my legal career in San Francisco. In 2000, I left California for the Czech Republic. Later, career opportunities took me to Luxembourg, the UK and Belgium. Finally, mainly thanks to my family circumstances, I ended up back in the Czech Republic. I am grateful for the international experience I’ve had the fortune to have over the course of my career. The exposure contributed a lot to who I am today, both as a person and as a professional. Not just the places I’ve lived but also the people I’ve met and worked with, teammates and superiors.
