Katja Nigsch – 40 – Liechtenstein
Vocational and Educational Training (VET)
Katja completed a traineeship at the Connacht Tribune in Galway, as part of her training to become a graphic designer. She now works in Liechtenstein as an office assistant at the Ministry of Health, and on weekends at an art museum. Prior to her VET mobility, Katja felt shy when speaking English. By the end of her traineeship, however, she noticed a marked improvement in her language skills, and even felt confident in her ability to live and work internationally. Her experience also allowed Katja to appreciate the wealth of knowledge to be gained by adapting to new ways of life and being open to other cultures.
