Hi everyone! I'm Damla Nur from Manisa Social Sciences High School and I will write about how our project Fit2Belong affected me.
At the beginning of this project, I was in first grade in my high school and trying to be more social like everyone. I can't say I was introverted but it was still hard to make friends easily and after Miss Aktas introduced the Fit2Belong project and its aims I felt so happy about it. Because I learned that every youngster are not social, like me, and its normal to feel lonely but we can create an area to tackle loneliness. I felt so excited about it. While we were planning ice breaker games and activities, I wasn't feeling lonely anymore. It was much easier to make friends. Also, it helped me to be a more responsible person. Now I can plan activities by myself and I feel more confident.
It was an amazing opportunity for me, and it completely changed my personality in good way. Thanks to Fit2Belong project I have made lots of friends from different countries.
Thank you for everything, love you all
