The exchange in Costa Rica was a good opportunity to get in touch with cultures and people I’ve never met before. It was surprising to see closer the difference in opportunities between European countries and South American ones. European exchanges are great opportunities to share thoughts and get experiences, this exchange has been what it was expected to be.
This project was useful to compare the different ideas of the participants. new skills have been explained that I will put into practice in my life. knowing new people allowed me to "open my mind" for new experiences.
The experience in Costa Rica it has been useful to interact with cultures completely different than mine, there I've improved my skills in English language, how to do a speech in public and I've shared pretty ideas and moments with amazing people.
The Youth Exchange ‘Empower to Lead’ was an amazing experience to me. I have learnt a lot of practical things about leadership and I have broadened my horizons. I am very happy about having met participants from various countries and having learnt about their cultures. Last but not least, discovering Costa Rica’s beauty in the free time has been an unforgettable experience to me. I am very grateful for the opportunity to participate in this project given to me.
The Youth Exchange “Empower to Lead” has been an interesting experience. I enjoyed the exchange of perspectives about being a leader. I was especially impressed by all the great ideas that we managed to develop in such a short amount of time and the commitment demonstrated by all the participants. I am really glad that I got to participate in this Youth Exchange and that I had the chance to lead some sessions for the amazing potential Leaders that emerged during this week.
