I completed my BA in 2017 at the University of Tartu in Estonia. I majored in History with a minor in Finno-Ugric linguistics. During my studies, I spent a year in Hungary as an exchange student studying the history and culture as well as the language of this Finno-Ugric nation. My research during my Bachelor’s course was focused on the Estonian War of Independence on the tail end of World War I—more precisely, the functions of the Food Ministry, which was called to life in the context of this war and demolished shortly after. My main field of interest is modern (Eastern) European history, which I would like to pursue during my time in the Global History program. The Global History program appeals to me due to its broad possibilities and innovative approach to researching transnational history.
