14:15 . I do miss Spain and I especially miss my family. It is difficult for my friends back home in Estremadura, to understand why I left my Spanish roots to come to Brussels and work on European identity. Perhaps many of them don’t really understand what European culture is about. Maybe that is even why they dont necessarily get involved in European elections.
I genuinely believe in the notion of European identity and European culture. I work with people from all European countries on the same files and we realised that the topics of culture are similar between our countries. What we want is to contribute to strengthening the notion of European culture.
