A before and after in my life


© 2020, Carolina

It all started in 2015 when I was studying at the IES Puig Castellar in Barcelona. The coordinator of the school, at that time, was called Roger and he proposed me to do an exchange in Croatia but I cannot do it. I regretted losing that opportunity and when they told me about the Erasmus scholarships I didn't hesitate to sign up to get a place. After a lot of effort, I got my place and did my internship in London, in the company Twin Group. My experience was wonderful, it was the first time I left Spain and traveled to a foreign country with a different language than mine. It was a big change in my life. I had always been very afraid of languages and for the first time I was facing one of my fears. During that month, I was able to learn to listen to a language that I found difficult to understand and develop. The family that took me in loved me and I had a very close relationship with them. After doing my Erasmus+ and getting to know the Mundus Association, in 2016 they proposed me to do the internship of my superior grade in the Association and thanks to my experience in the Erasmus+ and my effort I can get a job in the Association
