First inter BC-Labs MILMA meeting
Short description
On 17th may, all MILMA laboratories attended a meeting in order to make contact with the participants of the others labs. Before the meeting started, the Mayor of Fuenlabrada, Javier Ayala, had the chance to speak about the Project and how important it is to have the opportunity to be trained in an innovative project such as MILMA.

The meeting took place at the headquarters of the CIFE and was divided into three parts. 

In the first one, the participants had the opportunity to listen to Enrique García's success story, who has a degree in computer Engineering and is working in the accessibility area of ONCE Foundation. Enrique told he was born without arms and with a physical disability in his legs. He also talked about how all these circumstances marked his life.
The most important lesson that Enrique wanted to transmit to the participants of BC LABS was that they always have to go toward for their dreams, nothing is impossible if you want to do.
In the second one, the participants of each BC LABS presented their training labs to the rest. 
This part was very interesting, because people had to explain their training to others and, with all these explications emerged possible synergies between the LABS.   
The last part was the funniest, we did an activity with a lot of question and all the participants had to found people who share same characteristics. On this activity the participants developed their communication skills as they were talking with other people who did not know in order to get some information. 
At the end, the participants of the BC LAB of catering prepared an agape for all the participants and all they could enjoy this time to exchange experiences.
