Georgios Agoritsis is an undergraduate student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Technical University of Crete. His interests lie in security in systems and services, hardware and engineering management. During his academic career, he has been involved in a variety of extracurricular activities. His most important achievements include his Fulbright nomination as a Student Leader from Europe and his role as an EU Careers Student Ambassador of the European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) during the current academic year.

As a Fulbright Fellow, he will participate in the Study of the United States Institutes Program for Student Leaders from Europe, in the Summer Institute on Entrepreneurship and Economic Development, hosted by the University of Tennessee – Chattanooga (UTC). During his grant period, he will be introduced to entrepreneurial approaches by reviewing the development, history, challenges, and successes of U.S. entrepreneurial enterprises and he will participate in interactive skills building and leadership development sessions. He is convinced that all great disruption begins with lasting hope. Good leadership creates a clear vision, whereas great leadership creates a clear road to get there. This is exactly what the Institute means to him: great leadership and clear roads.

Summer Institute on Civic Engagement

I am an undergraduate student at the Medical School of Democritus University of Thrace. I am astonished by the field of medicine but also aware that in order to make a difference and progress, you have to be well informed, communicative and able to form new ideas. My aspiration is to one day make an impact. From a young age, I have tried to broaden my horizons by attending Model United Nations Conferences, and by volunteering for various activities and organizations. As a medical student, I have participated in the organization of meetings held by students for students (Medical Students’ Conferences), published articles, created posters and given oral presentations at conferences such as the 35th Balkan Medical Week and the 46th Annual Panhellenic Medical Conference.

This summer, I will take part in the Summer Institute for Student Leaders from Europe and more specifically, in the Institute on Civic Engagement at the University of South Carolina. The program will touch upon issues such as leadership skills, community building and cultural exchange, which I consider beneficial to my personal and professional development. It provides for a unique opportunity since I believe that in order to achieve change, you have to know how to lead, while keeping in mind  people’s needs and wants. The knowledge that I will acquire will stay with me throughout life and guide my actions and decisions.
