Project description:

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Being an Entrepreneur was the theme of this wonderful project. I was happy to share this experience with another 6 young people from our country. The project took place in Katowice, which was beautiful city with a lot to offer. We stayed there with another participants from countries such as Albania, Georgie, Poland and Ukraine. 

There were two great people who took care of us and the programme through the whole time, Tomek and Khato. Both of them were there with is the whole time and tried their best to make the project amazing. As one of the first activities, they organized few ice breakers so all of us could get to know each other a little more. They also set up the programme the way we learned new things and also have some free time for more ice breaking! 

During the week we tried to explore as much as of polish culture. We visited city Centre few times and also took part in intercultural evening in Katowice. We also visited lake close to city and we enjoyed some quiet time there. 

At the beginning organizers divided us into groups so we could work on our own business ideas. At first we decided what we want to do, they did the logo, presentation and advertisement in form of video. The last part was actually the funniest one. At the end we all presented our ideas and then picked the best team. I can say that while working on the project, we got really close to each other and we had the best time! 

To sum up the project I would like to say that it was one of the best experience of mine! We all got a chance to meet new people, create new friendships and improve our English skills. We also enjoyed some quality time during intercultural nights or the movie night! I am so happy I could be a part of this fantastic project and I would like to thank EYCB so those projects could happen.
