Konstantinos has been working for a year at the Directorate-General for Infrastructure and Logistics at the European Parliament in Luxembourg. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2006 and walks with the aid of a crutch. We asked him how he found his working environment.

"By working within an environment that is very helpful to me (nice colleagues, accessible infrastructures), my health condition is now steady, if not improved. Moreover, the projects that I was assigned to deal with inspire me to work even harder. My main object regards the improvement of the facilities of the European Parliament concerning their accessibility to people with special needs. In this context, I feel blessed that I have been given the chance to demonstrate the European Union's best practices concerning disability issues."
