My name is Eszter Szabó. I spent one week in Palermo as a participant of the DiverCity – Minding Minorities youth exchange.The construction of the activities was very good and I feel that we could immerse ourselves in the topics and look at the issues we dealt with (ex. stereotypes, minorities, differences, discrimination, etc) from all angles.
“I wouldn’t have thought that one week can change somebody so much”
Brand new thoughts and emotions were born in me and I feel – though I gladly welcomed and took into new cultures so far – that I became more open toward people, and, what I think is very important, I can stand up for people who needs my help. I understood this when I arrived home and let the memories settle down.
