LIFE+ | Why do an Erasmus + internship?

Erasmus + is one of the European Union programs to support training, youth job, and education inclusion. I have never heard of it before to come to Sofia Bulgaria and participate as an intern in the International Center for Development of Education and Training.

Firstly, I will explain to you shortly about Erasmus +. It boosts and supports actions identified in the Education and Digital Area, but also the European Pillar of Social Rights and the Youth Strategy 2019-2027. Offers different opportunities, for example, exchange in higher education, vocational education and training, adult education, sport, and youth, among others

I applied when I was studying my master's course in Spain, and my plan after finishing was to come back to Colombia, but when I was chosen for the internship, I asked myself, why not?

It has been one of my best experiences in a personal, but professional way. I have had the opportunity to work in a totally different environment, learn about project development, since the initial point, where is important to identify the problem and recognize the mindset of your audience.

But also, this experience has been an opportunity to go out of my comfort zone, and make me grow up in a personal way, manage my time, travel but at the same time be responsible with my job obligations, living with people that I have never seen before. It teaches me to be conscious about the importance of always going out of your comfort area, and look forward to something more, always be learning not just about your job, or educational environment, your teamwork, and every new aspect you have to handle teach you something and boost your self. You should do an Erasmus + internship.
