My journey to sweden
A short fragment of the story

Hello, my name is Sefa Çilingir, I am from Turkey, and I live in Ankara. I’m 24 years old. After playing semi-professional football for 6 years, I quit football due to injuries and decided to focus on university. I am an agronomist and am studying to be a veterinarian. I did my undergraduate education at Selcuk University. But I’m not running my own business at the moment, so I decided to slightly change the path of my dreams. That’s why I chose a different sector and I want to eventually establish my own company within this path.

 A friend of mine told me about FAAL organization and the opportunity to go on a volunteer program in another country. When we talked about the details, I said why not, it would be an exciting experience and a journey beyond my dreams.In my research before I came, many people recommended that I celebrate New Year’s Eve in Copenhagen/Denmark, this opportunity may not come again, so I celebrated New Year’s Eve in Copenhagen. It’s been a great experience
