Hej, I am Laura, the brand new volunteer from France! I am happy to have the opportunity to spend one year in Åmål. I chose to volunteer in the Europe Direct office to get more experience about EU communication and to enhance my employability. During my time here, I hope I will help the young people to learn more about Europe and the different opportunities they have to go abroad. I am looking forward to getting involved in the different events that will be held to promote the European Union. It is the first time I go to Sweden and my first days in the country were very sunny. I hope it will continue like this and that I will discover as many things as possible about this new culture and the population.
