It is sadly time to say goodbye to OBESSU as my internship has come to an end. In these few lines I would like to reflect on my stay with the OBESSU family, express my thanks and encourage anybody who is considering to embrace this excellent opportunity.

My internship was very brief but I have the feeling that every minute counted. Being lucky enough to attend several events during my stay, I had the chance to travel, see a lot, learn a lot and develop many skills. It was a busy period, as the end of the year always is, and I got fully involved in many tasks and processes. Even though everybody had a lot on their plates, I was always well guided and mentored to make the most out of my time here. What is worth pointing out is the feedback and appreciation I always received after delivering a task which kept me motivated. This internship was a real learning experience and it has broaden my horizons in many ways.

Sometimes the simplest things mean the most. Therefore I would like to highlight the great atmosphere at work and thank again to the people from the Secretariat who made my stay in Brussels unforgettable. It was not only thanks to our shared coffee obsession that I looked forward to going to the office every day.

I enjoyed working with all the amazing people involved in OBESSU, you guys are truly inspirational and can do great things. Just keep going!
