Spanish people are in love with Macedonia. Another week and one more group of Spanish arrived to Skopje. This new group of 6 people from Barcelona will stay for 1 month working in different offices around the city, in different fields, like business, marketing and administration. Volunteers Centre Skopje will host them during their VET-projects. Let’s get to know a little bit about them?
Ema Utrilla Perez, 17 years old. During her childhood, she didn’t travel a lot although she had visited some countries near Spain. In free time, she loves listening to music and playing basketball or volleyball. She also enjoys learning languages a lot, so this is a great opportunity to discover more about other cultures and improve her speaking abilities in other languages.
For her Macedonia is an enjoyable country full of interesting places to visit and has a lot of beautiful landscapes that she really enjoys. History is also fascinating and the food here is so delicious!
“I am sure this will be an extraordinary experience. I will be able to get out of my comfort zone, gain independence and grow up as a person.”

Carla Bertan, 17 years old, currently studying business and marketing. When she applied for Erasmus, she didn’t choose any country specific, but she is very happy to be in Macedonia. At first, it was a little bit shocking for her, because of the many differences comparing to Spain, “but to be honest, I like this city!”. She says: “The weather, it’s so weird, because it’s so hot, but it can rain at any time, people are very nice, and the history – it’s so interesting. So, I am happy with this option, and I wouldn’t change it.”
If she has to say just one word to describe herself, probably it would be “creative”, because she always loved drawing and painting and she believes that she’s a very creative person, and she also likes to think that she is kind, empathetic and open-minded.

Gerard Truyols, 17 years old. In his school it was suggested to him to go on the Erasmus+ project in Macedonia, and he was surprised that he has this opportunity. He thought that is a great adventure to grow up as a person, and you must get out of your comfort zone and get new experiences that you will never get in your country. He didn’t choose this place for his Erasmus, but Skopje is a very nice city, in his opinion. The culture and the history are one of the best things, but the best one is the food.
