Why I am part of the EYA?

“I am here since I see it as a great opportunity to do something good by volunteering and being a part of an Olympic spirit. I would also like to spread the said spirit among the athletes and to anyone who is interested. I love sports and I think that talking in detail about the Olympic values is crucial for the striving of sport towards even greater excellence.”

What do I give to athletes?

“Firstly, I will offer athletes comfort and support in any way I can. Furthermore, I feel it is necessary for them to develop not only in the sport they are doing but also as people by educating themselves and getting to understand the Olympic values first-hand. Bring athletes from across Europe together.”

How do I describe a European Young Ambassador (EYA)?

“A Young Ambassador has to be a good communicator, be able to organize events, have great team spirit and be excellent at making ends meet by being confident, determined and if needed, spontaneous.”

What is my motto?

“If one decides to do something, it should be done with confidence and utter determination.”
