"For me, the experience of this internship in Barcelona has been wonderful because I have been able to be in contact with different cultures and interact with people from many countries around the world. These months have been a big opportunity to learn about professional and personal aspects. I have been able to make new friends and visit new places in Europe.
In only 4 months I have lived experiences, with unique and inequable moments, despite of having just few months left; I know that will live more of these. I want to thanks for all of it to IAESTE and my university too for make this possible.”
