About Christian Alexander Filt
Finishing first year student at University College London (UCL), reading Philosophy, Politics and Economics with Social Data Science.
Along side my studies, I volunteer in the Slovak Debate Association and am part of organizing the Central European Conference at the LSE.
Coming from a multicultural background (Danish and Slovak), I have always had good command of the English language along with learning new ones and being proficient in the ones "native" to me. That is what propelled me to apply for a place at one of the most elite high schools in Slovakia - the Bilingual Grammar School of Milan Hodža - known for pioneering bilingual education in the country. After being admitted, I became interested in the extracurricular activities that my school offered. After witnessing an exhibition debate, I immersed myself in the activity. I finished my debate "career" as a four-time national team member and head coach of the oldest school debate club in Slovakia. More importantly however, I ended up being a person who searches for solutions to address challenges facing society.
Because my extracurricular activities and education convinced me about the fact that policy, along with all it can encompass, is what shapes societal outlook, I decided to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics at university.
