Since then several Hungarian and international piano, organ and chamber music competition awards have been bestowed upon her. She received her latest first prize at the 5th Coimbra World Piano Meeting in February 2020, and she has also received an award by the Italian Parliament in acknowledgment of her outstanding musical performances. She graduated with honours from Franz Liszt Academy of Music in 2016, and in the autumn of 2019 she started the MA programme in piano in the same institution, her tutors and supervisors are János Balázs and Katalin Falvai.
