Sílvia Feliciano, Council of the European Union

My name is Silvia and I have been working for the Council of the European Union for almost 10 years. I started my career in the institutions in the Legal Service of the Council, in the Department of Quality of Legislation — DQL. Here I learned how to work in an international and multicultural environment, where respect for others and cooperation prevail. In DQL our mission is to check the drafting quality of the Council’s legal texts and to ensure that all texts, in the 24 official EU languages, are legally and linguistically consistent. Ensuring the quality of legal acts is about safeguarding that they will be applied equally across the EU. Over this time, I have also had the opportunity to participate in various projects and to be an in-house trainer. In the Council we have the necessary tools to pursue our professional and personal development. At first, coming to Brussels was a real challenge. I quickly discovered, however, that Brussels is a very lively city, with a great cultural offer, with lots of parks and gardens, where you can stroll, do sport or meet with friends for a walk or picnic. Here we find all the opportunities an European capital has to offer in parallel with the quality of life of a “small” city.
