Ana Timotijevic is a graduate of the Malta College of Arts, Science, and Technology in the Department of Photography. We asked Ana about her motivation, activities, and the benefits she gained from participating in the program.
Ana pointed out that The European Solidarity Corps provided the perfect opportunity for her to explore a new country and experience life as a local. Through the program, Ana engaged in various activities that allowed her to gain new skills and work in a team. She also had the chance to participate in local activities, and public holidays, and explore the area with her colleagues.
“During the program I participated in many activities, some that were in my field of studies and some that were not, which was a great opportunity to learn new skills. I did design and photography and worked in a team.”
Ana highlighted the personal growth and increased self-sustainability she gained from the experience. She learned valuable life and professional skills, developed a better understanding of cultural differences, and improved her communication skills.
“It has definitely become more enriched with the various experiences that I wouldn’t otherwise have and people who I have crossed paths with that have taught me many things and I will cherish those connections for the rest of my life. I have also grown a lot, as a person.”
Overall, Ana’s participation in the program has enriched her life with diverse experiences and connections that will be cherished for a lifetime. She has grown as a person and gained a deeper appreciation for the opportunities presented through her involvement in the European Solidarity Corps.
