My introduction

Hello everybody! My name is Sarah Freistedt, I´m 19 years old and I live in a small village next to Magdeburg. After my A Levels I decided to have a great year full of new experiences. So since September 2011 I´m a German volunteer in Bildungsnetzwerk Magdeburg and work with a second volunteer together, the Italian girl Roberta.

After the preparation meeting for „ Access included“ in February we were really excited and looked forward to the 10th of march! So now the groups of each country have arrived and I am sure we will have a great time together, have a lot of fun in our workshops and make a lot of new experiences!
