"One day I'll be an Erasmus girl"... Now I am!


© 2020, Angelica

I remember my first open day at my school. It was 4 years ago and I told my mom "I promise you, one day I’ll partecipe at the Erasmus + project!”. My English was not very good but I believed in myself, I started studying so hard and that day finally came! I packed my suitcase and with my friends and teacher landed at Manchester airport. I was happy and scared at the same time. My close friend and I met our host family, they were super friendly and polite and we had a lot of fun together! After some days I started my internship at a photographer’s where I met wonderful colleagues, and even with them I had some pleasant moments! This experience had helped me to open my mind, to respect people more, I improve my English and my personal soft skills! Now thanks to this experience, I know what I want to be one day and what I want to do! I am very grateful to have been able to participate in this experience.
