Why one year as a volunteer? by: Felix

I always knew that I wanted to spend time in foreign countries recreationally or maybe even as part of my future occupation.

So when it came to the time after i finished highschool there really was just one possibillity. I wanted to participate in an ESC-project so I could meet a new culture and people, go outside of my social bubble and learn for the future.

Understanding and meeting different people with different backgrounds has always been important to me, because this is the only way that prejudisms can be destroyed.

As a person with a history of migration myself learning about cultures and their relations with each other, especially in the European Union has been a huge priority in my life and an ESC seems to be one of the best opportunities to learn about such things firsthand.

Finally I also hope to learn more about myself and my possible plans for University in this year.
