Every year on September 27th, FLEX alumni celebrate FLEX Appreciation day. It is a perfect occasion for alumni to remember all the things that FLEX exchange program gave them and how it changed their lives. This year, they got very creative; alumni from different countries made some amazing videos and we are highlighting few most popular ones.


FLEX alumni from Eastern Ukraine created this video where they are showing off some dance moves:

FLEX alumni from Moldova showed that they can not only dance, but they can also write lyrics:

First post dedicated to FLEX Appreciation Day!#FLEXAlumni are introducing the FLEX Band Moldova! Check out the Ed Sheeran's song "Shape of you" – FLEX version. "The idea came to me at 2 am and I just started writing the lyrics during the night. We decided to say #ThankYouFLEX in a creative way! We are bad at singing, but pretty good at having fun! Hope you appreciate the effort and enjoy watching this video as much as we enjoyed making it" shared Victoria Lungu'13. Great job, FLEX Band Moldova!

Even though alumni are thankful for their FLEX exchange year and experience every day, it is great to mark a day to publicly say your appreciation. If you learn how to be thankful and share your positive experiences with others you will be much happier! So spread gratitude and happiness, there are many things and people around us to be thankful for every day.
