Hello, my name is Katariina and I’m 19 years old. When I graduated from high school last summer I decided to do something different during my gap year and the long term project in Macedonia sounded exciting! Now I’m so happy that I’m finally here after a long visa process. During the few days that I’ve been here I have already met so many kind and warm people and I’m looking forward to getting to know people better.
In my free time I like to be with my friends. Usually we’re just playing some board/card games or cooking but the most important, we’re big fans of the Eurovision song contest! Also I love to be in summer cottage and chilling but even though I love just doing nothing sometimes I have to clear my head by playing sports. I prefer running and cross-country skiing so athletics is a thing that I usually do on my own.
In Macedonia I definitely want to explore all the places and get to know better culture and especially food! I’m sure that I’m going to have a wonderful 8 months here so I’m going to start this adventure now!
