My impression about this experience is really good! At the beginning I didn’t know what to expect and I was a little bit afraid of what was waiting for me. After the project started, I noticed myself doing something huge for the students and for me as well. I felt really useful during the sessions, besides learning a lot from the students.
The biggest challenge I’ve faced as a GROW trainer was to deal with a lot of different teenagers during the sessions. In order to do that, I had to deal with each of them in a particular way. The interaction with the teenagers was great! Sometimes exhausting, but always gratifying. We hung out with them a lot!
From this experience, I’ve learned how to express myself in a better way, using body language in order to achieve that. Having patience and managing the stress are other lessons learnt from GROW.
The most beautiful moment I’ve lived in this project was the closing ceremony.
If someone from my country asks me about Romania, I would say that it’s an amazing country with friendly people.
