Hey everyone! My name is Katie and I live in the heart of Europe in a small landlocked country, called Hungary. Since age 15 I live in the capital, Budapest. Before moving here I used to live in the countryside in a small town. I'm a first year MA student at the National University of Public Service, studying International Relations. 2021 is going to be my second summer at CCB, I'll be a member of the amazing kitchen staff again!
What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?: My biggest achievement so far is completing my first marathon race. It was very challenging, both mentally and physically. Since that every time I have some challenges or face obstacles, I remind myself it is all temporary - as the pain was during running - and if I keep going further no matter what, at the very end I'll reach my goal.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?: I like all outdoor activities, but my two favorites are running and swimming. I also enjoy spending time with friends or baking something delicious food in the kitchen.
What are you most looking forward to about CCB?: Even though in the kitchen we didn't have that much time to spend with campers, it was always so much fun to be around them, whether if it was at PB & J station, cup and plate window, or cook-outs. Kids are enthusiastic, curious, open-minded and easy to talk to even if English is my second language.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?: I'm really looking forward to seeing friends from summer 2019, meet new faces, grow as a person, and have a great summer again.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?: The wonders of nature. As a city girl, it was challenging for me at the beginning to spend all my days in such a different environment, but I got used to it very soon. Now I know how special it is to live the cabin life, sleep under the stars on Cabin Day, do cook-outs, go hiking in Pisgah forest, and explore the wonders of western North Carolina. These things are really worthy to experience in life.
