Past WC appearances

Our proudest moment of the past year:
The successful organization of World Heart Day in our university. As a result, more than 60 students underwent diagnostic tests for heart disease.
Biggest challenge from the past year:
In one of our projects, we deal with a child who has a serious disease. The biggest challenge is to help to cure this girl … we created a telemedicine platform to provide her with qualified diagnostics.
Team described in one word:
For Nina, the best moment of her two-year tenure with Enactus resulted from finding a way for a young girl with a rare eye disease to receive treatment. The worst? “Rehearsing with the presenting team [before the National Competition], even though I had a terrible sore throat. I was drinking tea and ate a lot of honey.” Nina has s been involved with Enactus since joining a master class for a previous project and now serves the team as its Vice President of Administration. Nina envisions a career in business and plans to graduate in February 2019 with a degree in international economics and management.

As team captain, Shkolnyi has faced significant internal challenges through the past two years to lead his team to EWC 2017. “Returning back from EWC 2015, I found out that my team broke apart,” he says. “I put all my efforts and knowledge to create a completely new and sustainable team.” Shkolnyi joined Enactus three years ago after another member invited him to help collect waste paper for an earlier recycling-themed project. He, too, plans to graduate in February 2019 with a degree in international economics and management. For now: “I want to feel the spirit of EWC again, and to [make] new business and friendly contacts from all over the world.
