Natia Mataridze – ATSU Alumni

“At present I am working in the administration of State proxy on the position of the director of the apparatus of Relations to the Society. My responsibility is to cooperate with media, spreading information about the projects carried out in Imereti region, making releases and news, managing administrative web pages and pages in social media…. In short, I work for everything that is related to the society.

I studied at Akaki Tsereteli State University on Master’s program of Public Management. I chose the profession of journalist on my Bachelor’s program and as I started working in public service, I decided to know more about this field and get complete theoretical knowledge together with practice.

My professional interest is relations to the society and marketing. That’s why, I chose the research topic “The Influence of Political Advertisement”. I think that I will continue to deepen my knowledge in this field.

In general, education has great importance in person’s life. It widens the views of a person and gives us the ability to analyze current events and see the complete image of several things beyond the fact.

After finishing the school, at the age of 17 or 18, it is quite difficult to make right professional choice, though, I don’t think it’s a tragedy, because the whole life is the process of searching and making discoveries.

I advise young people to search and explore more, widen their borders and use different kinds of opportunities to learn and find the job which will make them inspired and excited”.
