The traineeship allowed me to grow professionally and put my University degree into practice. 

Despite the circumstances, the traineeship offered me the opportunity to meet people from all over Europe, and also learn about the work of the Commission. 

I was in DG SANTE at the right time and at the right moment. This meant that I was able to not only work on the new EU4Health Programme, but also help with the COVID-19 crisis response. 

The traineeship allowed me to gain professional experience, but also get insight into Europe and what the European Union represents. 

As a non-EU national, I am very grateful to the Commission for this amazing experience, and for demonstrating its true European values.
