I participated in an Erasmus+ Mobility Programme for VET, which started on the 5th February 2017 till the 16th February 2017. The mobility took place at the Friesland College in Leeuwarden in the Netherlands.

During my stay in Leeuwarden, I had the pleasure of working on the development of a digital game with Dutch students for a joint project between Valletta and Leeuwarden, which are European Capital Cities of Culture 2018. I found the experience extremely enjoyable and full of new experiences. The need to be self-sufficient and be responsible for myself helped me to learn more about life. I’ve also enjoyed learning to work with the Dutch students as well as fellow Maltese ones as a team to achieve a common goal.

During the free time, I had experienced the city’s cultural side by visiting the Oldehove church at the city centre. On the weekend I had the joy of visiting Amsterdam and experiencing the different style of buildings there in comparison to Malta.

I feel the mobility provided me with an opportunity to experience a different part of the world as well as have new experiences and learning opportunities.
