Hello, my name is Kert, I am 22 years old and I come from Estonia. I have many different skills that I think would be useful and still there are many spots that I could improve . During my university studies I realised that I don’t want to spend my young age in a small country and study theories in university. I want to meet fascinating and interesting people. I want to explore the open world and help the ones who are need. I want to get out of the comfort zone and make things that are meaningful. Luckily for me, Lindersvold knocked at my door at the perfect time.
My name is Zane Karīna, I am eighteen years old Latvian girl and I feel that it is my time. I understood that this is the right time for me to achieve my dream. This was my last year in high school and for some time now I have been thinking that the average road, which most of my peers are taking, is not for me. Now I am feeling that I am doing things right. I feel that this is exactly what I was supposed to do. I want to meet a lot of good people, who think the same as I do, so we could make the world a better place for everyone. I want to give my love to those who are in need of it, to those, who will appreciate it. I want to help every child in Africa acknowledge the fact that they are as special as me or every other human being. I want for the children to be aware of their abilities and to strive for their goals regardless of conditions around them. I want to make something good and important out of my life, which will allow me to be proud of myself. And I am not willing to wait. I want to see how beautiful this world really is and I want to find myself, so I can understand what I want to do in this world. Adding to this, I hope that by participating in this program and by becoming a DI, I will have inspired some other young soul to do great things to become a better person.
I was always making spontaneous and unusual decisions in my life. The main reason why I joined this program was curiosity and a will to try something different. I hate learning just theoretical things so I decided to find an activity, where I could give not only something for others, but also gain a lot of valuable experiences. I was more concentrated in taking care of myself and now it’s time to see what I can do for the ones, who probably needs me. What is more, the different people with various traditions and manners always had cached my eye, so this is going to be a chance to meet open-minded people and share my experiences with them. Also, it will be a big challenge for my character and personality, but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. I want to turn my life in the right way that in the end of it I could tell myself: yes, Rimante, it was worth to live!
My name is Karen and I am 66 years old. I was born in Switzerland, my mother was swiss and my father danish. Me and my family moved to Brasil on 1956. I grew up in the big city metropole – São Paulo. My brothers and I received a swiss education at home and a brazilian one in school. My education was influenced from the brazilian culture (food, music, socio-economic environment). Very soon I realised that Brazil is a multi-cultural country. I started to understand these differences when I was a child and I never stopped. I have lived in many countries and in every country situation is different. There are a lot of people who even don’t know what is poor, they don’t have any idea how poor destroys people in 3rd world countries and its just because they are stuck in their comfort zone. And that is why i am here. I am 66 years old and that doesn't mean anything. Age is just a number. Now is the right time when after all that i have experienced I can finally share my skills and give back all the good things which life gave me.
Hello, my name is Domenico Capozzi. I'm Italian. I'm 40 years old. I have a degree in Sociology. I am interested in the study of social phenomena. In particular I like to study the interaction between social phenomena and the place where they are located. Compared to the different cultures I try to understand what they have in common and what makes them different from mine. I believe that in every culture are traceable points in common with all. I decided to come to Lindersvold to know Africa and its culture.
I was thinking about having a gap year after high school graduation in Lithuania. But my girlfriend gave me another idea. She told me that I can go to a school that school advisor had told her about in a school expo. So I had decided to join her and get some very valuable experience from working/studying in Lindersvold. And now I am here making food, cleaning, gardening and having other jobs for the saving up period.
