1.What does ESN mean for you?
Definitely ESN means people. I even can’t count how many new friendships I got thanks to ESN and ESN conventions! It’s worth to mention that I don’t mean only ESN members, but also Erasmus students with whom I still have a contact.
2. Why have you joined ESN?
The person who convinced me very fastly and effectively to join ESN was my friend from Uni. I decided to join, because I wanted to meet Erasmus students and spend more time with my friends who were involved in the section’s life. Firstly I didn’t know that ESN is such a huge organisation full of possibilities of development. And fastly I understood that it is something for me.
3. Fun fact from your #ESNlife.
I’ve never forgotten how during another presentation about finances of ESN Poland on probably CLR Wrocław I saw so many tired faces and I tried to figured out how I can make them alive. I thought that I will say something funny. And then I said: “Smiling!”. Most of people who knows me cheered up and this phrase is now recognised during other ESN conventions.
4. What has changed in your life since you’ve joined ESN?
Since I joined ESN, I definitely became a person who is more opened for new people and new cultures. Moreover, what everyone noticed, 99% of my time was spending on Erasmus’ events, conventions or other duties involved with ESN.
5. What has ESN taught you?
First of all, I developed my soft skills: autopresentation, public speaking, self-organisation, presentation. Additionally, as a national treasurer I had to possess a financial and accountant knowledge in order to deal with finances of ESN Poland efficiently.
6. If you were to be an ESN project, which one would it be?
It’s hard to choose the only one, because in each of them I can find something what attracts me. Mov’in Europe and the idea of promoting mobility among students is amazing, because everyone should be aware of possibilities which gives us Erasmus Programme. Another project is Mentor, which the idea is to help Erasmus students to adapt to a new place and it’s extremely important.
7. Have you been on Erasmus exchange?
Yes, I got place to Sheffield in Great Britain. Spending more that one week in UK was my dream which thanks to Erasmus Programme came true.
8. Your favourite place on the planet is...?
London is the place where I have been a few times so far and I’ve lived there for 2 months. I love the international climate which is all around this city! But my heart will forever stay in my hometown Poznań where I always come back with joy.
9. Your favourite word?
How I dare to say something different than “Smiling!”. Always when I have a bad mood I reap this phrase and it’s always a little better. Because how our life looked like without a joy and smilie.
