João L. from Portugal (53429) September

Tourism | Year of birth: 1995 | Arrival date: 01.09.-15.10.18 | Length of stay: 4 months


Whilst studying, I’ve worked in two part-time jobs for the past three years. Working at both an hospital and a consumer protecting agency gave me some familiarity with administrative and consumer related services. I’ve also worked for a while at a bookstore, organizing books and working in the reception.


I took this chance to simultaneously live abroad and get a working experience before carrying on with my studies. I believe living in a different social and cultural context will broaden my horizons and will allow me to meet people with different backgrounds. Norway will present a number of challenges and changes to my daily life, and partly, I chose Norway because it offered the best conditions for me to be able to help paying for my own studies.

Personal qualities:

I consider myself easy to get along with, or so experience tells me. I’m calm and fairly quiet, I consider myself a hardworking, independent and organized person. Im always eager to learn, expand my knowledge and explore new ways of doing things. I’m a flexible person which allows me to change and adapt as required.
