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."

"I’ve loved travelling ever since I was a child. I’ve always been the one signing up for all the schools trips abroad and different kinds of exchange programs. At university I decided to take the opportunity that Erasmus+ gave me and I studied in Portugal where I discovered one of my biggest passions - meeting people from all around the world and getting inspired and fascinated by their stories. After graduating and working for a while I made a huge step out of my comfort zone and moved to London all by myself and in spite of all the difficulties that I had to go through at the beginning, I don’t regret a single second of it. What I love about working in forStudents is that I can really put myself in our clients’ shoes as I’ve experienced moving to a different country myself and that it allows me to keep in touch with the world even though I’m back in the Czech Republic now."

"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 Svoboda - 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."
