My Europe in a personal object
YoMem - Young Messengers of European Memory
This story tells which object represents Europe for me the most. I am talking about my passport which is a very strong symbol of my attachment to Europe because it allows me to travel. For me, Europe is a space where you can travel and discover other cultures.
A short fragment of the story

My passport accompanies me everywhere I travel, it has become a symbol for me. When I have it in my pocket, it means that I am abroad or in an airport. Today it is old and worn out and I am proud of that. It means that it has been used a lot.
