1. What does ESN mean to you?
ESN is primarily for me people. I know that a large number of people answer this question just like that, but I do not get it! I really love meeting new people. I drive around Poland later and visit them, having a good time together. I recommend it to everyone!
2. How did your ESN adventure start?
I was not a typical fresh man - previously I worked for 2 years in the Students Council of the Gdańsk University of Technology, which gave me knowledge and experience about organizing events, which is why I quickly started to coordinate the OW.
3. How did ESN change your life? Why have you joined it?
I joined ESN thanks to Klaudia Czyżewska from ESN Gdańsk, who was then a member of the local board. We knew each other from the previously mentioned SCPG, where I started to get bored a bit, so I wanted to try something new. I can honestly say that since then I have developed a lot, learned to work with people on an even higher level and speak in a substantive way. And how did ESN change my life? I gained many acquaintances, I would say that even a few friends, some of whom are now with me in OC NEG. Also thank you Klaudia! <3
4. If you were an ESN project, what would you be?
Everyone is probably expecting something in the shape of "of course NEG!", But I break between NEG and Hel(l) Surfin 'ESN Gdańsk (who does not know it, change that). Both projects are closely connected to sport, and I have been physically active ever since I remember. I love it and I could not live without it, hence the choice.
5. #FunFact about a life in ESN.
Stupidly admit, but for a very long time I could not figure out what is the development of the abbreviation "PC&CC". I didn't deciphered it even after taking the NEG position, but finally I managed to understand it and myself! : D
6. Did you go on the Erasmus+ exchange? / What is the most interesting experience you had so far?
I have not participated yet, but as soon as I have the opportunity - I will definitely use it!
7. What inspires and motivates you the most?
Who knows me, then knows that I really like concrete feedback. Of course, this positive one is more pleasant to accept, but when it's negative, there is no need to break down, and draw conclusions from it and improve for the future. Honesty will be the most important!
8. Favourite place in the world?
Close your eyes. The rays of the sun lightly stroke your face, and around you feel the smell of the forest broken by the smell of fresh hay. In the distance you can hear the chirping of birds and the timid neighing of a horse - he apparently can not wait for the gallop in the bare field of the village leader. You sit under a tree on a thick layer of moss and pull out Andrzej Ziemiański's Achaia, and after a long reading you run a narrow path over a small but very clean lake. A quick bath in cold water immediately refreshes you, you immediately feel that you are alive. After returning home, you bring a cow and collect eggs. The honey from the apiary is already waiting on the table - it stands next to a crunchy loaf of bread bought in the morning from a local baker. After making dinner, you sit comfortably in an armchair, stroking a dog lying by your feet and relaxing with fire flames from a brick fireplace. You can open your eyes now.
9. Did ESN help you discover some things you didn’t know you were good at?
It's hard to say whether thanks to ESN I gained new skills or discovered them. It is easy to say that ESN gives a great opportunity to develop and meet new, great people, so take it and get it all!
