Reka originates from Romania, although her nationality is Hungarian. She studied arts in Romania, in Szekelyudvarhely – which is predominantly a Hungarian town in the middle of the country. After highschool she went to study fashion design at University of Art and Design, Kolozsvar – also in Romania. Graduating and earning a BA diploma there, she moved to Budapest (Hungary), making a big change in her life. There she began her studies in Conductive Education at the Andras Peto College. She earned her degree in 2016. She is experienced in working mostly with children with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, traumatic brain injury, developmental and behaviour disorders. Besides, she also acquired new experiences with young adults participating in summer camps as a conductor teacher assistent in Hungary and Germany. She truly believes in beneficial effects of working with the children in groups and individually as well, helping them to achieve their potentials. That is efficiently accessible in a multidisciplinary team, hand in hand with other therapists. She is still searching to find an eligible connection between arts and CE, because these two are radical points in her life, and she hopes to find opportunities for this at iHOPE.

Bio: I have worked in summer camps for children with learning disorders and developmental delays since high school. I graduated from Andras Peto College in 2016. During my studies, I’ve worked with children with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, TBI, developmental and behavior disorders, as well as adults with traumatic brain injuries, stroke, or Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, I spent a short time working in a hospital rehabilitation center with adults with recent traumatic brain injuries. In the hospital, I experienced the benefits of a multidisciplinary team working together to make the children more independent and to give them the possibility to live life to the fullest. I’m beyond thrilled to be working at iHope!
