Bonjour, c’est Fumiko! Je suis originaire de Genève et j’effectue actuellement un stage à VolTra!
Hi everybody! My name is Fumiko, a half Swiss, half Japanese girl. I was born and raised in Geneva, Switzerland while traveling often to Japan, my mother’s country. And I’m currently having the internship exchange programme with VolTra.
I participated in a Tai Po workcamp last month. It was so memorable that I met different young people from Hong Kong as well as international volunteers from Korea, Taiwan, Philippines. We had experiences such as BBQ, beach cleaning, school renovations, sightseeing, etc.
The last night we had a farewell party, and everyone cooked a dish from our own country. So I made a Swiss dish, “röstis” but everyone misunderstood me and thought I was going to make a “sweet” dish”, a dessert.~ 哈哈. It was so silly but we became friends even not everyone has a good level of English. Friendship has no borders if you try!
My team was called “Big Family” and we are like a real family, we all helped each other 🙂
