Where did my all journey od psychology begin? I first met psychology in high school in civics lessons. We tried different tests, did experiments. Psychology began to attract me with its peculiarity and mystery. This interest deepend more and more and I started searching for various psychological books and researching on the Internet. Subsequently, I already knew that my journey would lead to a deeper study of psychology and therefore I devoted all my motivation and energy to preparation for entrance exams, which I finally passed and I was accepted to the Faculty of Arts University of Pavol Jozef Safarik in Košice to study psychology. It is true that at first I did not have a clear idea of where and in what area I would like to work as a psychologist after school. I was attracted to work both in healthcare and in school with children. However, the last two years of study came the decision. The reason was my participation in research, where the mental health of workers in high-risk occupations was examined and the output was also my diploma thesis on the topic „Psychological workload in high-risk occupations“. This was a turning point when I became fascinated by the topics of work psychology and subsequently the motivation to apply for doctoral/PhD studies. Thanks to him, I will be able to focus on psychology at a scientific level and thus contribute to new knowledges. At present, I will devote my research to the issue of late career and work flexibility, which is the topic of my dissertation.
Today I know, that my decision was really right. Every day I realise that psychology is an area that cannot be neglected in life. And finally, a little of my personal life. In my free time I like to travel, go hiking, studying foreign languages or baking healthy cakes
