On September, 2012, I started working as a legal assistant in the CoE Office. Personally it was an amazing professional and social experience for me. The staff there was really respectful, professional and patient to help me get adapted soon with the rules and the way of working. The main goal of every CoE Office in Europe is to promote human rights and other important core values and that was what everyone in the office used to work for.
A normal working started at 9:00 and finished at 17:30. Every day we used to sit in the morning at the round table in the kitchen, drink coffee and discussed about what we were going to do during the day, shared opinions on several topics related to the Office’s issues. And later the day was full of different activities, roundtables, conferences and other similar event. The office was very often visited by politicians, decision-makers, ambassadors and delegates from CoE Headquarters. So it was an amazing opportunity to get in touch with very notable people who were good contributors in their fields. Those contacts were very important for me and have served a lot during my professional life.
