My internship experience in Action Synergy was absolutely amazing. I want to tell you more about it. These three months have been rich of pleasant surprises. When I attended my master degree in EU project management I was expecting to work soon with Erasmus+ combining my recent professional path with my great passion for education and social issues. I really didn’t expect to do it in Greece thanks to an other Erasmus+ project.
Students from Keighley College (Leeds City College) worked in Action Synergy for a few weeks via Erasmus+ KA1 short term student mobility. Haroon and Jonathan wrote those about their experience with us:
When I heard about the program Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs I thought it could be a great opportunity to develop my skills in a real work environment. A great chance to see how I can adjust to a company already in motion and obtain very valuable knowledge that will help to my future company.
It was late in the evening, when a friend of mine texted to me about the application of Action Synergy, regarding the CulTY project in Vietnam. Firstly, I said to myself there is no way for me to be selected, the chances are not in favor of me. In the end, actually, I got selected and I feel grateful about the unforgettable experience I lived in Vietnam.
Embarking on the plane to Ghana, all we could assume for the long-expected trip was a week packed in images of women balancing large baskets of goods on the top of their head, cute babies with African braids tied on their shoulders with colorful fabric strips, vendors on a beautiful chaos that proves Gaudi an amateur when it comes to architecture and world-class marketers just schoolboys with much to learn from “informal trade methods”. And all those between speeches, workshops, exciting sessions and a bunch of photos through our pinkish glasses.
