27.05.2014 | Lara from Spain


April 1st, 2014 marked the first half of our trainee program. By now, we’ve already spent 10 months over here in Düsseldorf. It almost seems like yesterday when we arrived at ARAG on July 1st, 2013 – our very first day.

Many things have happened since then: We encountered so many strange and surprising situations, we met new colleagues and friends and after discovering Düsseldorf we started to love this city. We learned more than we could expect, and we have worked hard to adapt ourselves to a different culture and to a foreign country. We have also gone through different stages on our personal cultural shock cycle. We have supported each other and got closer and closer. Finally, we became true friends.

Some days ago, I talked to another trainee about the time we’ve spent together. She made me realize how amazing it is to find real friends among 7 completely different people, from diverse countries and cities with various ways of thinking who have been chosen by ARAG for a traineeship by pure chance.

I am looking very much forward to the months to come!
