What does EBEC mean to you?
European BEST Engineering Competition? Just kidding.
For me, EBEC is a challange, it is an event capable to change a person in a good way, participant or organiser, it doesn’t matter.
EBEC means sharing. Sharing an experience with people from all over Europe and world, actually.
EBEC means creating new friendships, during competition days. EBEC Final gives you a chance to be in contact with around 500 people for more than one week. It is impossible to create no new friendships.
When you look back at event, what are you most proud of?
I was a photographer and I was happy that after the competition a lot of participants and organisers changed their Facebook profile photos, which meant photos of them taken by me were excellent!
How did organizing EBEC Final helped your personal development?
A lot! I experienced something I have never tried before. I became more self confident, I improved my skills in photography and in PR, in general. Being a PR Responsible of EBEC Team this year is mostly because of that experience.
After lastyear’s EBEC Final, I also changed the way I face problems in my life. I feel I am more reasonable now, when I am in front of a choice.
What is the most important thing you learned during the organization of EBEC Final?
That nothing is impossible. For example volunteers from all over Europe, organising the biggest engineering competition in the old continent. We made it possible. We are continuing to make it possible. We will make it possible forever.
