Andreja Veluscek; Slovenia; in Barcelona—5 months"I hope to achieve my main goals. I’d love to finish my first degree in Photography in Barcelona and to apply for a Master’s programme somewhere abroad. Concerning my character, I’d like to grow up more and to become more open-minded. I am actually both a very open-minded and optimistic person but I’d love to be even more open for this world and people."

Roma Jelinskaité; Lithuania; in Barcelona—5 years“I have a dream to learn snowboarding. I tried it last year and I loved it! So I would like to improve a lot. I hope to see my friends more often next year, to go out more often and to work less. Party more and enjoy my life as much as it is possible! Hope to finish my Master’s as well. And yes, I would be happy to change something about myself: I want to worry less about life and future. To sum up, I hope to be more relaxed person next year.”

Seb Hammond; UK/Poland; in Barcelona—2 years"I guess usual stuff such as drink less, etc. I would like to improve my languages as well: French and Italian. Particularly Italian because I meet many people from Italy at work, so it would be great to speak fluent Italian. Also I hope to earn more and to work less!"
