New ideas, companionship, love.

“Quiche“ (a tart filled with a savory, cooked custard) traditional French pie, I tried in Petrinje, Croatia and I never forgot it. 

Which part from Erasmus+ inspired you to do what you are doing now?

Maybe Erasmus+ did not inspire my profession, but has a big influence in my thoughts and how I see things right now.

 I learnt a lot of non-formal educational methods that I constantly use in my daily job (school classroom).

Books, football and (a last few months) healthy food. 

What accomplishments are you most proud of?

I am happy. I have a great family and a lot of true friends from everywhere.

How this Covid 19 time has affected your life, and what have you done to grow during this year?

I start to care more for my health, I do a lot of research on this subject and I respect my body more than usual. 

What would you say to motivate other young people to take part in youth projects? 

Sapere Aude or “Dare to know“! Give change to yourself for new things, for new knowledge and new experience and DARE to take part in Erasmus+ projects and I know that you will never regret.
