#WUTpeople “We were thinking hard what to buy first: a cash register or a currency-counting machine?”

It would be easier to list the things he has not done than those he has tried his hand at. He is the man behind the “Before I Die” event which took place in 2015 at the Warsaw University of Technology. He is the author of a popular apparel brand DZIK DZIKI, and he has recently launched the brand of Ewa Niespodziana, Poland’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 contestant. Konrad Pawlak, a 23-year-old graduate from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, the Warsaw University of Technology, tells us what inspires him and what gets him going.

PhD Marcin Kaczkan tells us how preparations are made for such a trip, what happens to a human body at eight thousand meters above the sea level and what it feels like after you have reached the top and why it is everything but not satisfaction.
