In a land of paperwork… and I was there


© 2020, Nives Rus

My name is Nives Rus, and I am still visiting Secondary School of Economiccs in Ptuj. Me and my classmate were one of the lucky ones and were picked to travel to Ireland with Erasmus+ program. I worked as an assistant and helped the manager Kyle with some files and did paperwork.

I learnt some skills that I will need in the future and saw some similarities and differences to my home country. All the people I met during my stay were very friendly and also curious about Slovenia. I also tested and improved my English language, since I learn it as a second language.

If you get this kind of an opportunity, do not let it go, make a decision ,go for it and live in the moment. Even if you do something wrong, you learn something new and that is something nobody can take from you.
