The inaugural event of this competition was chaired by Dr. Jake Mendelssohn Co-Founder of WER, who was accompanied by representatives of the different participating countries.
During his speech, Dr. Jake Mendelssohn gave a few words of welcome to all attendees, “When someone tells you that you cannot do something, ignore it, do it and it will be incredible what you can achieve when you try to do it,” he began saying.
“I know there are many students who have worked very hard and I really appreciate it, they are the most important thing here. Maybe in 20 years you will not remember me, but the things you have learned in this competition, your friends and the experiences you had will always be remembered. Congratulations to all who make this possible and congratulations to the students who are making the world a better place ”, he expressed at the end of his speech.
