After all the bullshit like SAT, Toefl, etc. I got to the USA as a student-athlete playing soccer. For the first time in my life, I realized I am pretty far away from home, fuck. The school was easy, but living was tough. First three-six months struggled mentally, then pulled myself together = 100% stronger. Started sleeping 3-5 hours, coding, data analysing, learning on my own (YouTube, Khan Academy). Found out a little bit about human brains, interested in eCommerce, critical thinking...In the top 10% Phi Theta Kappa members (3 mio.) and Georgia Champ 2016 with GMC Soccer Team. Fucked up my 4.0 GPA by getting a B in a required, stupid BIO class in the very last quarter at GMC.

Gymnasium Frantiska Xavera Saldy, german section (name of the school) - the second most difficult high school in Czech. This is where I changed for a little bit. I was satisfied with being average at school, started looking at the whole school system way different than others. Sometimes got kicked out of class, skipped school to go to practice / sauna / gym / pool (in Liberec there is an amazing swimming pool with sauna and gym), because I simply did not see any point in coming to a boring three-hour class learning nothing. Smoothly graduated from the school with 2 diplomas (so called Maturita in Czech or das Abitur in German).

Zakladni Skola Lesni (name of the school) - the time when I always had to be the first and the best. I even jumped the queue at lunch to be the first. Humble, persistent, modest kid.

Founded a Non-profit organization for future generation. Showing Czech adults and kids the joy of life. "Kicking them in ass" in order to travel and live life. Motto: Compulsory school attendance has been here since the 18th century. Sitting in class is useless, annoying, and so the education lacks its purpose. Let's change it together. www.praxiso.cz

His work demonstrates an outstanding student. "Via Letter of Rec

He has been the person I called on for difficult catering assignments because of his attention to detail and ability to anticipate upcoming requirements. When given a task I have been confident that it would be completed 100% without oversight if assigned to Adam. He has the desire to not only complete the task assigned hm but he also takes pride in making sure the job is mastered. Having him as a willing and eager employee has been a joy. Adam would add value to any company, and I recommend him for any endeavor he chooses to pursue. "Via Letter of Rec
Michael Laws – Math teacher
" Adam demonstrated a love of learning and the level of commitment necessary to scceed in college and beyond. I was impressed by his ability to pay attention and fine details. Durig group assignments, I would often see Adam take the lead and demonstrate to others how to solve algebraic concepts. He explained his steps in an organized fashion and was able to adjust and adapt to various concepts that led to him being one on the top students in the class. He is also on the GMC soccer team and does work study in the cafeteria. We need more students like him that has control of his time management. I am certain that Adam will continue to do great positive things in his future as he adjusts to life in the United States. "Via Letter of Rec
" It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Adam Prskavec for employment with your company. Adam and I worked together at Georgia Military College in the Food Service Department, where I was the assistant director. He is honest, dependable, and inredibly hard-working. Beyond that, he is extremenly flexible and always willing to help wherever needed. He is an excellent team player. Adam works well with others and always manages to foster positive discussions and bring the best out of other employees. He can be counted on to work just as hard while working by himself. As a dedicated employee and an all-around great person. "Via Letter of Rec
