Life Gift!



I am Maria Saritzoglou. I studied in the secondary school of apprenticeship of Thessaloniki OAED. During my studies I worked in an institute and learned about dermatology, wellness, nails, massage. My teachers announced to me an Erasmus in Barcelona. My dreams came true and I wanted to prove that I deserve this trip to Erasmus.

When we arrived to Barcelona I found myself in a different world. On Monday we started in the institute. The institute was clean and there was sense of positivity. Emilie, the boss of “secret spot” was excellent at her work and she wanted to teach me. I had many pleasant experiences with the stuff and the clients. Besides working, I went sightseeing in Barcelona to muséums etc.

In my opinion Erasmus is a remarkable program all students should follow if they want to improve their skills at work and many experiences. I met many new people in this country, and had many expériences that change my Outlook of life.

I now work in Thessaloniki, in an institute and I am really satisfied. At last, my dreams have taken place.
I special thank my teachers and the school for the opportunity was given to me .
