TESTIMONIALS - Chance2Learning Programme - ERASMUS+ 

Elena

22 years old, Paralimni

After this training course, I realised many things about my personality and my ability to communicate and share my thoughts with others. Moreover, I came up with the skills of video editing and filming. It was an amasing experience that I will always remember. I use many of my recent knowledge in daily life and especially at work.

Elena Loizou

22 years old, Nicosia, Cyprus

"Beyond the Veil" was not just another project for me.. it was a new door of opportunities to discover a new world.. The world of video editing.. Every day we were editing a new video with a new story behind...some realistic and some funny.. its was amazing to work each day within a different group, film, direct direct and edit videos.... For me this project will remain unforgettable not only for the new skills about shot camera moved i have now after during this week but also for the people i met there and the discussions we had. in this point i like to thank Ifigenia Katchie and Social Policy and Action Organization for this opportunity. I look forward to see everyone again in March for the second part of the Training Course.
