The idea of taking part in an international team competition in the field of cyber security - the ECSC - was a dream for me. It gave me the motivation I needed to give my all in the Challenge and that in turn meant that I was actively involved with the issues. If the Challenge, and with it the possibility of participating in the ECSC, had not been there, I would certainly not be at the point where I am today in terms of my knowledge. Furthermore, I have been able to establish contacts with like-minded people whom I greatly appreciate.
