Sofia from Portugal, Germany


Hello, my name is Sofia, I come from Portugal and I work as a volunteer in Culture Goes Europe e.V.

I work in Project Brave New You, and I organized with other colleagues, the Internation Youth Exchange "Come Together". It was really nice to organize this and even if it was online we got different participants from other countries, a lot of young people, and it was good to share with them different thoughts, exchange our cultures and to speak about the topics of culture and stereotypes. We got a lot of knowledge and it was really interesting.

I hope that we can still organize more projects like this. If it's allowed to be in person, it will be really interesting for me. But even when we were in a lockdown, it was really good that we managed to a youth exchange through Zoom. It gave us a lot of new skills and it was a really good experience to work on this and to participate.
