On the 1 March, 35 students and I went to L’Eliana near Valencia to take part in an Erasmus+ project called “May ICT be with you” ( which we actually call it GRIT for short).  We lived with a Spanish family for 5 days and it was truly an amazing experience.

We were 6 students from 10i campus, I stayed together with my good friend Anna in a girl named Pati’s house, it was very interesting to see how different they live in Spain compared to life in Denmark.

The school we went to all week is called Rivas Luna. We learned about topics like e-safety, cyber bullying and gender equality, we were also tested in our English skills, because we couldn’t just speak Danish with the other nationalities.

When I heard about it, I thought that this was a once in a lifetime experience, so I just had to take part in the project.

We had to write an application and after that we took part in an interview with our teachers, Lene and Camilla, I was very lucky that I was one of the students, who qualified to take part.

Many of my friends asked me, if I was scared to live with a family, that I didn’t know so far away from home. That was not the case for me, I was super excited to see how different it was and to meet new people, so if you ever have the opportunity for something like this, do it!

I got to know a lot of new people and a lot about myself on this trip and would recommend it to everybody how has the change to.
