Interview with Anna from Poland

Anna worked during summer 2015 with Lecti Adventure, preparing information about partners, analyses and possibilities for enlarging the markets for tourism. Together with Magda, Anna created a hugely successful City Game for children and Erasmus+ students.

Why did you choose Bulgaria?

I have never worked in any Eastern European country before and I considered Bulgaria as a chance to visit a place which is completely unknown to me. Since I would call myself a very open-minded person, I have always had an interest in learning about different cultures and languages. It was a great opportunity to compare Bulgaria with Western countries, which I had visited before.

Why did you choose Lecti for your internship?

Lecti attracted me because the offer of internship was well-prepared and promising. There were interesting and diversified duties included.

What was the most important thing you learned?

The most important and also fascinating thing I learned was cultural differences. All interns had the opportunity to present their point of view and compare it with others. What’s more, I’ve found that in leading a business, flexibility is of great value.

How did the internship change you?

The internship enabled me to broaden my horizons and gain life experience, which I consider as very important.

What did you enjoy the most?

I enjoyed not only being a part of the multicultural environment in the company, but also the location of the traineeship. Varna is a great place, where lots of various events take place, especially in the summer period. My stay here with other trainees was a wonderful adventure.

Tips for other Erasmus+ students and trainees?

Don’t be afraid of going to Bulgaria. With even small assistance from supervisors you will enjoy your stay here.

Plans for future career?

My plans for the future work are not strict detailed, because career planning is an ongoing process where you need to be also flexible.
