What is your best memory of IACA?

Many memories come to mind, but I would like to share my best memories from when I attended the Summer Academy in 2017. Firstly, the warm welcome that IACA team gave us upon arrival to Vienna. This welcome has continued  during our stay in Vienna. Then, the meeting with other participants from across the globe and studying alongside them. The different interaction in between made me upgrade my knowledge of different cultural of each country. Not only the different cultures but also the exchange of experience in terms of corruption practice. Some of the best memories were also the lectures that I attended at IACA, which helped me succeed in my profession. Finally, being able to take photos of various places, visiting queen palace, Vienna downtown, etc. – were also highlights.

How has IACA influenced your career?

My experience with the IACA Summer Academy has greatly influenced my career, as I later had the opportunity to use the acquired knowledge and provide training to those most vulnerable to corruption.  An open mind is needed, and it is now easier for me to convince people of the negative consequences of corruption.

What’s unforgettable at IACA? (most memorable)

My most memorable moment at IACA was the acquisition of high level of knowledge of different point of view in the field of anti-corruption.
