Seth Williams | I now have friends all over the world!
“When I decided to go Lithuania I met up with a student who was previously an exchange student at LCC. She told me that if I have a chance I should definitely become a part of CMAP. When I arrived at LCC I applied for the CMAP internship position. I knew it would be very challenging, but my goal was to improve my communication skills. Moreover, I like helping others and I really wanted to learn about local culture.”
Elvisi Sulozeqi | I Want to Encourage Students to Take Part in Exchange Programs
“The social aspect of French society astonished me. People there really pay attention to each other. For example, anybody can stop and talk to a homeless person and try to help him somehow. There is little difference between the rich and the poor, and the system is working in a way that everyone is happier. I think in general, it’s a happy nation. The French have this saying: “We take happiness very seriously.”
Tatjana Pomogajeva | Hard Work Really Pays off
“For three years I worked at Swedbank until I went on maternity leave. As a mom I really wanted to do something special for my daughter. At that time cake decorating became a trendy thing and I decided to try it as well. I loved it and wanted to learn more. With the help of the Internet I developed my decorating skills and then I decided to complete a course in England. While completing this course I realized that I didn’t just enjoy decorating; I also liked the social aspect of workshop training. It is such a fun way to spend time together while also expressing your creativity!”

At the end of the day it is all about the skills you get, the people you meet, and how much fun you have!”

Mykola Sokolov | All My Belongings Are Carefully Packed in Two Pieces of Luggage
“Always have a plan and apply for the jobs with clear perspectives. You need to understand where you will be in 1, 2 and 3 years assuming you are doing your job well. If you start as a receptionist at a small company it would be very hard to get promoted and get further relevant experience even if you would be the best receptionist in the world. There simply might not be any opportunities.”
Ehab Abaideen | I Appreciate Every Day
“I hit the rock bottom before I was given an opportunity to come and study at LCC. I couldn’t afford to stay in Turkey. I would have gone back to Syria. There I would waste my life because there’s nothing productive I could do. And I don’t know… I would be waiting for my death. But now, I appreciate every day. I am very grateful.”

This phase was very challenging since the participants had to reach out to numerous people and organizations to get high ratings.”
