Although having been born in Budapest, Hungary, Mira’s upbringing predominantly took place in various large and industrial cities in areas such as Southeast Asia, the Middle East, as well as cosmopolitan and international regions in Europe. After completing the International Baccalaureate Diploma and discovering her passion for business and psychology, Mira moved to the Netherlands to continue her studies at the University of Amsterdam. She is currently in the second year of her program of BSc Business Administration, and aiming to further explore and gain experience in the areas of marketing, communications, and management.
After being surrounded by a vast variety of individuals throughout her childhood and being sensitised to and having gained first-hand experience with different cultures and beliefs, Mira obtained a deeper understanding of the effects of societal mobility norms and traditions, and their importance in determining the native way of life. After moving to Amsterdam, Mira grew admiration for the Dutch cycling culture and the beneficial consequences it has, not only for society and the environment at large, but for the citizens by playing a large role in improving mental and physical health and strengthening the sense of community. She is passionate about the amplification of cycling culture around the world, and the encouragement and support of minorities who may be at a disadvantage.
As a Content and Communications Intern at BYCS, Mira hopes to expand the reach of the BYCS social networks and engage more individuals in the conversation of creating bicycle-oriented cities. She hopes to foster the enthusiasm of and participation in reaching the BYCS mission of 50×30.
