Three years ago I made a decision to leave my country in order to gain professional working experience abroad. I had no idea how much personal, cultural and social knowledge I would receive in addition to that. It was an exceptional opportunity to live in other cultures, to admire them and learn from them, but also to learn about myself and my homeland Lithuania. How do I represent my country abroad? How do I feel living far away from home and what kind of ideas would I like to fulfill once I am back?
Seeking to continue my professional path here, at home, I have considered young professionals programme “Create Lithuania” as one of the strongest opportunities for not only sharing my knowledge and skills but also continuing my learning process. I have no doubt that “Create Lithuania” is a very unique programme. Not only does it encourage to return with and use positive foreign practices here, at home. It also gathers young, ambitious and talented people with strong motivation and determination to create for Lithuania. It is my sincere belief that this combination of experience, talent and energy can bring very positive changes to all spheres of life in the country while at the same time being profoundly beneficial for the participants themselves.
