Our team

Margarita Bortkeviča

Main organiser

It’s her 3rd year in BEST, so she decided to take this opportunity and rule organisation of the summer course! Even if she likes to sleep a lot, during the summer course in Riga, she will try to stay awake all the time to make this event successful and socialize. Crazy and responsible person at the same time? Yes that’s totally her!

Kārlis Ozols

Academic Responsible

On the first sight you wouldn’t think that Karlis could be responsible for academics, but believe us, he is doing a great job! This guy is always busy, but he always finds a way how to relax in the evenings after everything is done.

Kristiāna Tretjakova

Participant Responsible

Kristiana feels super motivated for the summer course, and she is very excited to meet all participants! She promised, that she will take care of everyone who will come to Riga for the course. Are you excited to meet her?

Elmārs Mamajs

Logistic Responsible

Our logistic-hero is Elmars! He will take care that everyone from participants has nice, cozy bed and delightful food. Who knows, maybe he will manage to bring Gordon Ramsey here to Riga, because for Elmars everything is possible!

Veronika Prilucka

Human resources Responsible

Veronika is our new member of BEST, so it means she is a part of our BEST family too. Why she is responsible for human relations on the course? Because she is super friendly and makes best muffins in Riga, and as we all know, food brings all people together. <3

Indra Pētersone

Social Responsible and Fundraiser

Indra is perhaps the most awesome person you will ever meet. Being able to balance both the crazy party and social stuff at night and the serious work and activities during the day. If you ever wondered what a female version of Creed Bratton from the TV-show "The Office" is like, Indra is your girl.

Mārtiņš Ilgažs

Public relations Responsible

Even if Martins is far, he is always with us. During all year he spent all the time in Georgia. What he is doing there? We don’t know, but you can find it out on summer course. Ah, and by the way he is making great designs for this summer course!

Lūcija Elizabete Smilškalne


And last, but not least is Lucija. She is coordinating everything, and checking are we doing a great job (of course we do). Also she is PR in our local BEST group, isn’t that cool?
