FPM Scholar Kateryna Pavlovska: I Have Chosen Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute Due To Sikorsky Challenge

 'Hello. My name is Kateryna Pavlovska. I am a 2nd-year student of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. My specialty is Applied Mathematics,' this is how I met the Monobank Scholar. According to the results of the winter semester control, she has a success rate of 99.71 points. 

The girl told me that she came to Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute from Koziatyn (Vinnytsia Oblast), where she studied at Taras Shevchenko specialized school №1, at a class of Physics and Mathematics. She enjoys exact sciences, so at school, she took an active part in Olympiads, competitions. She also was a member of the Junior Academy of Sciences. In her free time, she easily beat her peers in table tennis. 

 'I happen to get into Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute when I participated in the Sikorsky Challenge Startup Competition, which my teacher of Mathematics Inna Madei helped me prepare.'  says the student. 'It was then that I felt the University atmosphere. I also clearly understood that I want to enter Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. I realized that the FPM and the Applied Mathematics specialty would be ideal for me. A strong combination of Mathematics and Programming is what I exactly like to do.'

She was lucky to feel like a full member of the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute family for at least one semester. Kateryna has studied side by side with her groupmates for several months. The quarantine restrictions have changed everything. Today, under quarantine restrictions, she can only see their faces on the computer screen. 'I did not have any problems at distance learning,' says Katia. 'On the contrary, I have more time to accomplish the tasks, take various training courses, and get engaged in engaging projects. It was a sensation when Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute gave access to Coursera, which I actively used.' The student also took part in online conferences on Physics, Logic, Psychology of Conflict, the Culture of Scientific and Technical Speech, Ecology, English. Her materials were included in the collection of the conference participants. 

Also, Kateryna Pavlovska wants to improve her knowledge and skills in analytics, "This field is the most interesting for me, I stop thinking of the opportunities ahead. Now, I'm an Intern Product Analyst.  My mission is to help people find jobs by using product analytics. I am enthusiastic when I think I can change a person's life for the better". 

When I asked her how she managed to achieve so much and had good results, the student answered that she dreamed of developing data analysis. She likes what she's doing now, "To my mind, the most important thing is that I enjoy the process so much. That is, probably, why I get the right results." She did not say about her plans in detail for the future but said that they were enormous. 

It turned out that until recently, Kateryna had done karate and played table tennis. Only a happy person like Kateryna can say about her free time, 'My leisure is mostly self-study because my future profession is my hobby.'  According to the student, if a person enjoys the process and sees the result of the efforts, then a person who is a true professional will reach the top career. 

When we just about to say goodbye to each other, the student added, "I am so grateful to my parents and relatives for their support and faith in me. I appreciate teachers of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute for the knowledge they give.  It's really breathtaking".  That's a word for it. Breathtaking. Indeed. Our University can be proud of such inquisitive, strong-minded, and diligent students.
