Get to know our intern from France

My name is Sarah, 26 years old, and I come from Brittany, in France. My hometown, Vannes, lies along the Atlantic Ocean. However, I studied in Paris for 6 years –Political Sciences then a Master degree in International Relations. While searching for an opportunity after I graduated, I discovered I could do a Leonardo da Vinci internship in Europe. I thought it would be a very nice way to wrap up my long years of studying and get a professional experience abroad and thus finding a job more easily.

Why did I choose Bulgaria and Varna? Well, it was not my first time traveling in Eastern Europe. In 2011 I did a 6 months internship in Bucharest (Romania), and I really liked it. I definitely wanted to discover another Balkanese country, its language, culture and people, so it was only natural for me to search for an internship in Eastern Europe. Then I got this wonderful opportunity to do a 4 months internship at the French Alliance in Varna, Bulgaria. I felt really lucky: once again I could go and live in an Eastern Europe country, and the internship was really in line with my studies. What a great chance to show my professional skills and learn some new ones ! I got in contact with Association For You, my coordinator organization, and its director, Elina Raynova, who has helped me all along this project. Since I’m here, in Varna, I’ve got to meet a lot of amazing people, I’ve built a professional and friendly network, and I’m happy to say I feel really integrated in Varna day-to-day life. Indeed most of my friends here are Bulgarian, and I think that’s one of my best achievements here: broadening my mind and improving my cultural differences management (I studied it at University) through working and hanging out with Bulgarian people. About my job here, I’m really
hopeful it will help me getting a job, since my internship was really professional and improved my skills in my field.

I’m convinced that experience will remain something meaningful in both my professional and personal life.
