Identical Appearance, Different Personalities – Meet The Mentor-Twins of SZTE

The Prekajac-sisters became mentors of the Erasmus Student Network after a year spent in Spain with Erasmus scholarship. Petra and Ella help Spanish-speaking students at the University of Szeged.

’We discuss what to wear and how to style our hair every single morning; we look identical, yet we are different in our identities’ says Ella. Petra is honest, open-minded, impatient and oversensitive, while her sister is precise, patient and funny.



The identical twins do almost everything together: they love dancing and singing, but their true passion is to help others. ’After having spent a year in Spain with Erasmus, we had to realize that we need so much help and assistance when one has to live abroad – this is the reason why we joined the ESN Szeged mentoring body to assist Spanish students. Mostly we help them in finding a flat, using the library as well as dealing with administrative issues. We also take part in organising several programmes for international students.’

SZTE Experience

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.

I am studying at University of Szeged as a former Erasmus student, currently as a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder. Both the institution and the town are wonderful. Many entertainment and sports facilities are provided, and it is also easy to make new friends. It is a great experience to attend the University, and I would like to stay in Szeged and continue my academic studies.
