I recently travelled to Portugal on a youth exchange which was organised by MUYA (Malta Unesco Youth Association) and funded by Erasmus+
Travelling without my family was yet another big step forward for me in gaining full independence and I feel very proud that I achieved my goal, but I couldn’t have done it without the help of the amazing Maltese group that accompanied me, especially my group leader David Bonnici who looked out for me like a big brother. It was a great experience meeting other youths from Greece, Portugal and Italy; sharing our experiences and finding out about different cultures and languages and having fun too!!
I would like to thank all involved in this project for believing in me and giving me the opportunity for this wonderful experience and encourage other youths to join MUYA to find out more how they can participate in other youth exchanges and events!
