”Åland is for me, that small island where I can live on my own and be the person who I want to be without someone to criticize me on my deeds. Everybody is friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay very much in the outdoor. The open nature gave me great pleasure in finding peace and inner strength when I needed it.
I worked 4 months for Aland University of Applied Sciences, creating educational videos and content for the school, their classes and as promotional work.
I worked close with a communication and language teacher who taught me a lot during my internship there and provided a joyful stay for me.
My teacher at Nova College in Haarlem, The Netherlands, asked me if I wanted to go to Åland, Finland for an internship? I had no idea where Åland was but I said yes to go without hesitation. Finland is a country that you want to go to in your life, it teaches you independence and new insight in your own life. Åland provided that for me.”
