Either... or... Sam?

During our last interviews with Simon and Hugo we let the two of them answer “without words”. We’ve chosen a different way to introduce you to our GEWO students, Bence from Hungary, Lev from Russia and Samuel from Poland.

We gave them a choice: “either… or… ?”

Samuel – or Sam – is 17. He comes from Poland and is under contract to our partner, GEWO. Sam has already been fairly successful on the international scene: he was the vice-European champion in the mixed doubles at the Youth European Championships. At the Slovakia Open no-one could beat him in the youth category and he took a Gold back home with him.

We didn’t ask him about tournaments or trophies though, but subjected him to a grueling interrogation, with questions like this: “Sam, either no Whatsapp or no Instagram?”
