Ludmila Myslivcová Kopecká - founder, co-owner
"When I was 19 years old, I lived in Paris to study the French language. I had to learn a new way of life, another culture, foreign language and it was a great lesson in the “School of Life”. After France, I lived in England, USA, Ireland and traveled the world. I draw from that experience to this day and it gives me great empathy for the experiences of others as they learn a new way of life in my home country. It is the foundation upon which I developed the services of this organization. As we grew, it was imperative that our staff maintained the values of empathy, respect, inclusion, passion and hard work that propelled me to establish the services for students.

I currently live with my family at our family animal farm where I spent my childhood. My husband and I are permaculture enthusiasts. We love gardening, and everything associated with a healthy way of life.”
"Starting at the age of 16, I began traveling Europe and settled for 10 years in London, where I met many great people who provided guidance to me during my time there. I remember fondly the friendly feelings and care that I received from a local people, who never made me feel like a foreigner in their country. I have worked hard to instill this value in my life, my professional endeavors, and into our organizational culture.
My greatest passion is everything related to the mountains and mountain sports. I love meeting people with the same passions from all around the world."
Adéla Rožcová - Hradec Králové Branch Manager
"I have been a passionate reader ever since I was a child. I loved the stories where I could explore unfamiliar worlds and experiences from my bedroom. As I began my University studies, it was a natural progression for me to focus on making my own stories. I began by majoring in Czech language and literature but realized that I needed to expand the boundaries and experiences of my own life to be an effective storyteller. My journey to expand my understandings of the world and others was enriched by the people I met and places I saw while travelling. These two passions of my life – peoples’ experiences and travelling - combined in 2017 when I came home to become a part of the forStudents team. Now, though I am home, I still have the opportunities to explore foreign worlds through our clients experiences from all over the world. I love being a part of their journey as they explore mine."
Jana Kadaníková - consultant, Hradec Králové
"I believe that if you really want to experience foreign country, you need to really understand the people who live there. Being a part of forStudents team enables me to experience our clients’ countries and cultures every day, while I share mine. I appreciate the diversity of our clients’ lives, and the fulfillment of my job in making a direct difference in peoples’ lives. The motto which describes my professional philosophy best is: "The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. And I really do.”
Klára Suchomelová - consultant, Hradec Králové
"I have always loved travelling and getting to know foreign countries and languages. After few projects at school I got a chance to live abroad and study for a while. When I got back I had a lot of new experiences and I decided to study tourism with English and Russian so I could keep doing what I love. This passion of mine is the main reason I wanted to work in forStudents, to learn something new and help the students to have a joyful experience, the same as I did while studying in a foreign country."
Dana Kramolišová - consultant, Olomouc
"I believe that there is a lot of things you can call a wonderful experience. Studying abroad, moving to a new city or simply meeting new people… in my case it has been travelling and a couple of job opportunities, that I consider to be the most valuable, since they made me realise a thing or two about myself. Now I know that what I like the most is working with people and helping them. Being a part of the forStudents team challenges me and enables me to do what I enjoy, while being rewarded by having a job that makes a difference."
Hedvika Štrausová - Prague Branch Manager
"After my family and I moved to Mallorca for work, I discovered the other side of living abroad. There is quite a big difference if you go to a foreign country on holiday or living there. Starting from the language barrier, the longing for your loved ones, to the fact that you don't know what food you will actually get on the plate in the restaurant, because you have absolutely no idea,what the special name of dish means :-). Not always the new local rules and people make your life abroad easier, so I always try to help our clients with a smile on my face. There is no problem for me, but only a challenge. The biggest success for me is when our students are satysfied and coming back to us."
