What does EBEC mean to you?

It is hard to put into words what this project means to me as a person. The reason is the huge potential and creativity as a unique concept in the students’ world. EBEC helped me understand how just a well-organised group of students can achieve huge results when they are united. It also showed me how to face the challenges that occur during the organisation of complex events.

When you look back at event, what are you most proud of?

Since I still believe that EBEC is one of the best representations of engineering among students, there will always be things that make me proud. Firstly, being part of EBEC Final 2014 as a Topic Group member, I was astounded by the level of creativity shown by students based on our given tasks. Next, organising EBEC Final 2015 as an EBEC Journalist, I was impressed by how LBG Porto showed dexterity and professionalism during the whole event. It made me feel delighted how BEST as an organisation treats this event as one of their most important occurrences. Lastly, as a President of LBG Belgrade during the time EBEC Final 2016 was hosted in my city, I am proud of my team and the whole organisation, as well as how much persistence and strength we had in order to overcome all the obstacles during that one year of preparations for the event.

How did organizing EBEC Final helped your personal development?

It helped me a lot! Firstly, taking responsibility for a part of the event and seeing the outcome of all our hard work was actually the biggest lesson I learnt as a TG member. When EBEC Final 2016 was organised in LBG Belgrade, as a president I built the self-confidence to face any challenge that comes on my way. It can even raise to the extent of surrealism! I believe that specific event really made me a mentally stronger person.

What is the most important thing you learned during the organization of EBEC Final?

The most important lesson I learnt is definitely that good team work can move the rocks. I am extremely happy to know that I came to that conclusion after changing lots of different teams and work environments. All the good memories which we will cherish throughout life were a product of teamwork, unity, friendship and passion. Knowing that each one of us grew, progressed and that we couldn’t be where we are now without this development is a realization we will always be glad about.
