On the 9th of May I was invited to attend to attend Carlos V Premio Awards. The Award was given to the founder of the Erasmus Program, Mamma Erasmus: Sofia Corradi. 27 erasmus students from all over Spain were invited to attend this event.
In her words: ‘Going on Erasmus is to fully emerge into another culture’. It is to find yourself. It is not to be the best in yiur studies. You are not chosen because you are the best but to connect with others. Share cultures and life experiences.
His Majesty the King of Spain was also presentt. He took pictures with all the students at this event, after the official pictures were taken by press. As a king he could’ve just left after that. But the fact that he stayed proved that he’s an awesome person.
Here are some pictures taken on that day!
