Europe and meYoMem - Young Messengers of European Memory
if a girl with my name, personality and character was born somewhere else in the world,
and did not experience what I know in the tips of my fingers, in the ends of my hair, in the
stuff of that soul of mine, its existence yet to be confirmed, then let me tell you this:
to quote the ever-relatable Eve Jihan Jeffers - who’s that girl?
A short fragment of the story

growing up, I spent at least a week of every summer holidays in the mountains. “hiking”, you say in English, but in Polish it’s just walking. we share a mountain range with Slovakia and the border running through is one of those where there’s just a post, about fifty centimeters high or so. we'd play this game, my siblings and I, walking through the mountains when I was a child. take a step forward - you're in Slovakia. step back - you're in Poland again.
