All my trip was very exciting, I met many helpful people and it was interesting. Our coordinator Ania organized interesting excursions during my stay in Spain. The place of my internship was selected according to my interest and I learn a lot more. Our euroMind mentor was understanding and skillful to help us at any time when we had a any problem.

I will remember the practice in Malaga very well. I have learned a lot of new methods, such as dyeing or shearing. The boss was telling me many times told with great passion about various curiosities related to hairdressing. On Saturday, March 23, together with the whole group, the teachers and our best coordinator we went to Gibraltar. The trip was very tiring, but worth the views and impressions. It was worth to go up to the top and see all these beautiful views, and of course the biggest attraction – monkeys. I liked it a lot.
