Ready for challenges – ready for life!
A story by: Tea Tijanič
Country of origin: Slovenia; Destination country: Malta
I took part because I was curious, I felt like my life is going nowhere, I was unemployed and I had nothing to lose.
I went back because we had to finish the programme, although I really wanted to stay and I really wanted to go back. Maybe that’s what gave me hope I can live and prosper in another country as well…
The experience itself was great. I loved every minute of it, every day. My work placement was perfect, I learned many things which will help me in the future and got the glimpse of how things work in other countries. I had a great time at work, my boss was just perfect, not to mention the colleagues, who later became my friends. I grew, that I can say for sure. Apart from that I met so many good, kind hearted people who will stay in my heart forever and who I will remember dearly. I cannot really say I felt more european, I did feel a better and stronger person like I did at home.
I recommend this experience to everyone. It was the best decision I ever made. I left Slovenia without expectations and came back a different person, more confident and with a new point of view, new friends, new memories…
Don’t over think, just do it! 🙂
This experience could not happen without ZNI team. Thank you ZNI.
