Participant's testimony

“During this amazing week, I had the opportunity to attend to different workshop, seminars and classes where I learned the importance of networking, lobbying and all about the complex system of the European Institutions and its functioning. Some of these seminars took place at the different buildings in Brussels’ European Quarter. Having the opportunity to visit the EU Commission, the Committee of the Regions and the Press Club and have some important guests such as Inma Valencia and Frank Schwalba was truly an incredible experience” (Paola Vazquez Sierra, Technologico de Monterrey)"
