The question about why am I spending a year in a foreign country can be easily answered, at least for me. You could say that I am wasting one year of my life doing nothing, which by the way I actually heard. But for me the exact opposite is the case. If would have just continued studying without the challenge of getting along in another country, I would consider that as a waste of my life time. I want to be confronted with new circumstances new social challenges and difficulties concerning language because you can grow on these situations by solving or completely failing at them. The experiences are really valuable to me as I can figure out who I am and what I want in my life. And this is mostly why I wanted to participate at the European Solidarity Corps.
