At each session, the Chairs team, which serve as team leaders in the committees, is there to excel the expectations of making the session educational and informative as well as guarantee the delegates are getting the best out of the experience.

For Ia Tserodze #EYPimpact is Fighting for More than Ordinary

Ia tserodzeWe are extremely proud of the alumni who have represented our National Committee at International Sessions as officials. Ms. Ia tserodze  was one of the International Chairpersons at Leipzig 2015- 80th International Session of European Youth Parliament. Her inspiring point of view about EYP is, for indeed, worth reading.

“ EYP taught me that no thought can ever be ideal, so we might as well say what we think is worth fighting for.

I remember being asked to describe my vision for the future of the European Union in one sentence. If you similarly inquired now, seven years later, my response would remain unaltered: “My vision rests within the hope that one day I get to answer the same question as a citizen of the EU.”

EYP, to me, is not about change — it’s about expansion. It did not change my vision, but taught me how to be assertive and confident in it. EYP formed my dreams into lucid, attainable goal. It taught me how to cherish my European values, but also showed me how core values are not necessarily European, but human. It taught me how to turn an impasse into an asset. It taught me that it is better to fail at originality than succeed at imitation.

And it convinced me that I have every right in the world to not settle for the ordinary. “

#EYPimpact as a “Rewarding Addiction” for Tina Dolbaia

Tina dolbaiaThe landmark series of Georgian #EYPimpact continues with Ms. Tina Dolbaia who served as the Vice President of EYP Georgia and led the team of Human Resources in 2015-16. Check out how she shares her “rewarding addiction” to EYP with us!

” I joined EYP in 2012 and it is quite fair to say that from then on, for the consecutive 4 years, I became addicted to it. However, EYP turned out to be a very rewarding addiction as in exchange for many tiresome days spent on planning, organising, analysing or editing I acquired valuable knowledge and experience that fostered my professional and academic growth both within and outside of this organisation. Though, what I value the most is strong, lifelong friendships that I managed to build and that put a big, nostalgic smile on my face every time I think of EYP.”
