Testimonial

‘Two years ago, after finishing my first year of my studies, I decided to join the EBF and become an active member. I wanted to challenge and develop myself on a more practical level, since books and theories can only learn you so much. Competences like leadership and expectation management are learned by doing, therefore I applied for the Introduction committee and became the new chairman.
I was privileged to lead a very enthusiastic and wonderful committee during that time. Not only did I learn a lot in the course of the committee work, I also gained a new group of friends, which was an opportunity to develop myself on social levels as well. After the introduction weekend, I couldn’t help myself from applying for a new Committee and so I did. Currently I am the chairman of the ESR Prague. A committee with its unique challenges and again wonderful committee members. We are presently laying the final touch to our work, and again I am looking back to a successful year, with friends and high accomplishments.
In my opinion, Active membership at the EBF provides you with the perfect opportunity to challenge and develop yourself. You will work in an environment where everyone is trying to excel and prepare themselves for their future. Being an active member at the EBF enriched my student life in personal, social and professional ways and it can be the same for you!!
