Sofia CecconName: Sofia
Erasmus year: 2011
Destination: University of Leicester, UK

My Erasmus+ experience at the University of Leicester was my first international adventure and it was a turning point for myself and my future. I changed a lot: from shy and introvert to self-confident and more aware of the outside world. Since then, every step I took across my international path led me today to India, where I currently live. My journey started in Leicester and the beauty of it is that I don’t know where I will go next. I would recommend Erasmus+ to all the students who are willing to step out of their comfort zone, travel and have an unforgettable educational experience.
