Who am I?
"Once upon a time there was a student Piotr Szybilski. In 2014 he studied at University of Economics in Wrocław because he always loved economics. Through years of education he learnt why it is essential to know the basics of economics. Whenever he had a chance to spread the word of economic freedom, he took it, both in apolitical organisations and political parties. Because of this he found many friends. He wants to change the world that's why this story isn't finished yet..."
Marcin is a second year student of Economic Analysis at the University of
Economics, and IT at the University of Technology, both in Wroclaw. He
always spends his vacation ( and most of the weekends ) travelling -
trekking in the mountains, cycling, and hitchhiking. Combining studies at
two universities and travels is not so hard when you are fascinated with
everything that surrounds you. He is also not afraid of trying new things -
the first time when he was hitchhiking, he took an 11,000 km trip. You can

Barbara Mróz-Gorgoń, PhD. – an academic passionate about fashion and design marketing. Her research areas include new trends and challenges in marketing. She is particularly interested in branding.
Her story? A girl with a great love for music; a promising pianist, some said. And then, she met another pianist, her age but more talented – a true artist. At that moment she decided that she would not become yet another average musician. She needed to find something else that she could share with people.
During a seminar at the Wroclaw University of Economics, a professor approached her and asked why she was choosing economic sciences over music. Thanks to my musical education I have already learned how to make a show – she said – Now I want to know more about business. She finds marketing to be particularly appealing, as it combines arts with economics.
Since 2012 she has worked as an assistant professor at the Department of Marketing Fundamentals of the Institute of Marketing, Wrocław University of Economics, where she shares her passion with students.
