Hello, I´m Debora

My name is Debora and I am 28 years old. I am doing a European voluntary service in Sweden in Gothenburg. It is the second largest city in Sweden after Stockholm, it is composed of several neighborhoods a bit like Marseille. I live in a neighborhood call Rannebergen.

I realize my volunteering at Kooperativet Fjället. It is a youth house open Monday to Saturday. Most of them just come to talk and hang out with their friends. They have the possibility of programming activities (evenings cinemas or video games, play ping-pong and do pastry workshops). Last week, they organized a Halloween disco party for local kids.

Since I’m here, I participated in  training camp at the edge of a lake and I went to a trip to Liseberg amusement park for Halloween (I have often thought that I would fall hit the floor but in the end, I was very happy, it was so cool)

As far as I am concerned, I do not regret having come. It’s not always fun because of the language barrier, Swedish is a very complicated language. The youth were shy like me and do not dare to speak in English but they try a little more each day.

In the next post, I will tell you about my stay in Stockholm and I will come back to the activities I did in much more detail. Big smile and see you soon.

Debora
