Why I wanted to do an ESC! by: Lynn

Hello guys!

I am Lynn and I am 19 years old. I live in a really small village with only 230 inhabitants, one our away from Hamburg (north of Germany).

After I finished my A level in June 2019 I was ready to leave my place for a new challenge. Due to this reason I had two possibilities in my mind which I could experience in the upcoming year. Either go traveling with doing work and travel or doing a social year.

Since I always knew that after school I would like to be in another place for one whole year in order to get to know the foreign culture and new people it quickly became clear to me that I would choose the second opportunity.

So all these thoughts build up the idea to go abroad and get to know new sides of social work through the ESC and gain experiences together with people from other nationalities and cultures in youth work.
