Konnichi wa my name is Antonia Schaffrodt, I am 19 years old and I am from Heidelberg, germany. Last week I arrived in Fukuoka and today is my first day in working at Groundwork Fukuoka. I graduated in may this year and I decided myself going to japan because I already went two times to japan (first time was Kumamoto, second Azuchi in Shiga) .And I really want to improve my japanese. Furthermore I wanted after my graduation a little taking-off from the daily routine in my life. Also to find my life-aim what to do and where to go. But I also did not want to be lazy so I determined to do an internship. Due to the fact that I love working with other people, helping them and see people smile because I can help them, I went to Grundwork Fukuoka. The slogan “You are wonderful” is a great one. It comes from the deepest of the heart and every minute I am spending here I can feel the slogan is being acted out.
I am sure we will spend a great time together and we will have a lot of fun. I am glad to be here and am looking exited for the next five weeks.
