Hello! I am Begüm Başçoban, an industrial design student from TOBB University of Economics and Technology. I am 21 years old and I live in Ankara, Turkey. To begin with, I would like to thank Diyarbakır Environment and Development Association for giving me such an opportunity. I was in Nysted, Denmark with 60 participants from 6 different countries; the United Kingdom, Denmark, Turkey, Lithuania, Slovenia, and North Macedonia. Our topic was 'Fairness'. Each day we did many tasks and discuss about fairness that happens in our countries. Every day our day started with some energizers and activities as well. Thanks to these activities, I felt more energetic throughout the day and looked forward to other activities. Each day a country administrated the program and prepared the tasks for us. The tasks were challenging but we had so much fun. Some days we made short films and some days we prepared short theaters with our groups which were chosen randomly. In these groups, I had the opportunity to talk with every participant in the project. It enhanced my speaking skill also It strengthened our relationship with people in the project. We mostly talked about gender inequality, justice, and discrimination. Moreover, this diversity helped me to realize that in each country have nearly the same perspective about fairness. I made a lot of friends from different countries and different cultures and learned many things from them. Especially at culture nights. Culture nights organized for participants to promote their countries. Each country introduced its own culture, food, music, and dances so I've learned different things about their country and tasted many different foods and accompanied them in their dances. These culture nights and events connected all participants with each other so after 2 or 3 days later we felt like we have known each other for ages. I returned to my country with unforgettable memories and impressive stories which changed my way of look. These were the most unforgettable 7 days of my life. I hope everybody could have such an opportunity like this. Special thanks to Ali Osman.
