My name is Bianca and I’m from Romania. Beyond Wor(l)ds” is the name of the project I attended in Sicily this September. It’s hard to put into words how much activities like this help us understand the differences between cultures and accept everyone such as they are. Nowadays it’s not only important, but necessary to be openminded and respect other cultures. Through games and different activities where we were divided into small groups we figured out that we all have some stereotypes in our heads and when we meet a person we immediately judge him/her by the things we know to be true about the nationality of this person.
“It’s time we change and try to get to know the person before putting it in a box”.
