Klaudia and her experience in YEU
Hello dear readers,
My name is Klaudia, originally from Albania but living in the last two years in Lithuania, where I study my Master degree in Social Work. I came in Belgium on June 2014. I got the opportunity through the Erasmus Placement Programme, to become part of a summer internship for a period of 3 months, in YEU organization. I was looking for a new challenge in my life, developing new knowledge, skills, meeting new people that maybe would create a broaden horizon of the way I perceive world, of me. YEU organization is the perfect place that offers all the opportunities for youth workers, young people to develop their selves and gain a valuable experience. I found the organization environment a very warm and welcoming place. Welcome say to me: Tamara, Secretary General of YEU, who is smart and sweet at the same time, Eleni, Project Cordinator of YEU,a nice and friendly person, people from the boarding members of organization,.. so much welcomes.
Everyday tasks were a new achievement and realization.I think that youth work is a very special and unique world where there is a lotto discover. Meanwhile doing the internship in YEU organization I had the opportunity to take part as a participant and facilitator on youth events. Sharing of ideas, experiences, perspectives among youngsters, while facilitating the process,is a great way of perceiving knowledge and new skills.
In the same time, I think Belgium is a nice country for everyone that wants to be here, to live, work, study or just have the pleasure of visiting and seeing more about it, it’s a country that always surprises and offers something new. There is a lot to discover about this country, I wish I had more time to explore more. It’s always a pleasure to taste some typical Belgian waffles or belgian fries!
Last but not least, thanks for welcoming me YEU and for making this summer to bewonderful!
