The older we get, the more we start to listen to advices people give us. How to properly cook food or what cleaning supplies to use - these are the questions we more and more start to ask our moms. But we cannot forget the best advices our moms give us on daily basis- the ones about friendships, love and other life happenings. This time EYP session participants were asked about the best advice their moms have given them, because how we all know - mom knows best. Remind them to yourself, tell them to others, it is the wisdom we can only get from our life givers.

Each and every EYP session is a chance to immerse yourself in numerous new friendships. First awkward conversations during coffee breaks, checks on Instagram and other more original ways how to find something in common with people you get to spend a few days with. Stumbling upon these similarities and shared interests can be so calming and exciting at the same time that you may forget that there are other sides to that person.

Due to rising standards of beauty, set by the social media influencers and fashion industry, most of the people subconsciously tend to have that perfect body, thus developing insecurities about their appearance. The aim of this project is to show you that everyone is uniquely beautiful and everything is about ourselves, and not the opinion of the others. As, if you can't love yourself, how the hell you're gonna love somebody else?
