Roman Andrei (Romania) – Empower 2018 – Testimonio

“Erasmus Youth Exchange-Empower!” was the first project to take part of and it turned into a great experience. It uses “empower”, but I would also add enlighten to it’s name since this project helped us to enlighten our mind with new and useful information for our development as humans and integration in society, in a better society. In those 7 days that I spent in Spain, I learned that discrimination is something real that happens daily.

Kezia Fontaine (Francia/España) – EMPOWER 2018 – Testimonio

Participar en este proyecto de intercambio juvenil Erasmus Plus, fue una oportunidad para conocer gente que de otro modo no habría conocido.

Aprendí sobre todos estos países por su presentación visual y cultural, su ayuda mutua, su amistad y su propia visión de sus propios países, así como su valor. Es por eso que no entiendo por qué los estereotipos perseveran en Francia o España sobre Moldavia,…
