Discovering Days part2 – story of Marco

Recent News, Featuring
I’ve known the guys from Ha Moment for years. First time I’ve met Sergio was in 2013 and since then we’ve been meeting at least twice per year, by chance or by will! Since then we have lived uncountable amazing experiences within Erasmus+ projects. Do you think I could believe it when he asked me to work with Ha Moment in Lisbon? I guess it took me half a second to decide that I definitely wanted such an experience! The best way to accomplish this idea was doing a sort of internship which is actually possible thanks to the European Commission. This special way is called “Jobshadowing” and with the expertise from Ha Moment and Elisa’s determination, we’ve been able to present an Erasmus+ project that has been approved eventually.…

It started by writing a project 4 days before the deadline, and we did it. When I received the news that it was approved I was shopping for a Christmas meal, I think, and I started to jump all around the supermarket. When I arrived in Lisbon I didn’t really know what to expect, but I was welcomed with a nice meal by the river and cool, positive energies. Then I was explained what Ha Moment was currently working on and I fully realised how much I could learn from these guys (and lady). The 5 weeks of jobshadowing foreseen by the project went pretty quickly, among work meetings, coffees, a Storytelling training course to write, more coffee, getting to understand the Erasmus+ KA2 projects, bread and butter, a nice…
