European Parliament, Brussels Belgium
I would like to present in a few sentences my trip to Brussels in 2012 and what I visited. As everyone knows, European Parliament is the directly elected parliamentary institution of the European Union. First of all, European Union is one of the most significant and important institution with the biggest impact in Europe. I think that most of the people know how a person can go and visit that big building, because not everyone can go, visit the parliament and see how it works. This is only happens if you get an invitation from a member of the parliament. I want to step back in time and describe how it all began.
In 2012, when I was at high school we had a topic refers to European Parliament. We had to write an essay and the award for the winners was trip to Brussels and visiting European Union. Fortunately, I was elected with other 10 guys to go to Brussels. We went there, visit that amazing place, saw how they work and even we attended one of the meetings of the European Commission.
It was unforgettable experience for me and I never forget that trip. I met with most of the leading figures and the most important people who worked in parliament then. I even talked with them and it was such a big experience. Of course, parliament is a tourist destination, because every year groups going there and visit the institution inside. I was one of the few people who had a chance to visit it.
That was the best experience I have ever had. I am really satisfied and proud that I have been there. Some interesting fact is that each student who is EU citizen can apply for a traineeship and the vast majority of traineeship is in Brussels. European Union could be very useful place for youth people and especially students. Also, they organize meetings and events. Furthermore, they give a chance for young people to get big experience, a lot of knowledge and many unforgettable moments during the traineeship. I can honestly say that this is the greatest experience for me.
