Mobility changes you, makes you better in all aspects of your life, and prepares you to the challenges which you may face in your future.
A story by: Anastasiia Bulavka
Country of origin: Ukraine
Country of destination: Germany
I took part in mobility, because I was always interested in multiculturality and world citizenship. I wanted to try new life in a new country with new people and adventures.
I would have stayed there, because Germany is amazing country with beautiful nature, bright history and high quality of life which I admire.
But I had to come back to finish my studies in my home university. I hope I will go to Germany again in nearest future.
It gave me an excellent experience, both educational and cultural. I have learned how to live with people of different languages, religions and points of view. I found out how to look for compromise, how to solve problems etc. On the educational side, I have had many interesting lectures, which I think are of great value to my diploma and will strengthen my chances for brilliant future career.
For sure, this mobility made me a lot more communicative and understanding to the problems of cultural conflicts and how to deal with them. Yes, I feel now the citizen of the world and not the particular country.
I would always advise to take part in mobility programs, because it is always a constant improvement of the character, skills and amazing adventure of a life-time, after which you will never be the same. Mobility changes you, makes you better in all aspects of your life, and prepares you to the challenges which you may face in your future. There is an outstanding atmosphere of being part of something important, bringing positive results not only to you, but also to the society and entire European Community.
