Ioana Manciu, Erasmus exchange student from Babeș-Bolyai University (Romania) about the course:
'If living is like sailing, then knowing yourself is like having a map for your life. For me, this course is guiding me to discover myself, my beliefs and values in order to know what I want from life, how I want to live it and what I want to accomplish. It gives me a direction, reminding me that I can control the course of my experiences if I set goals and manage my time effectively. If I work in synergy with others and think in win-win situations. This course can have a big impact on both your professional and personal life, building your self-confidence, but also teaching you to trust others. Because your journey won’t be the same if you’re sailing on your own. It’s about the people you meet along your journey that make it more beautiful. Happy sailing everyone!'
