Mein Jahr in Finnland

Moi! My name is Michelle. I’m 19 years old and from Germany. I’m a volunteer here in Finland, specifically in Jokela which is a small town with 6 000 inhabitants, luckily just 37 minutes away from Helsinki by train. My workplace is the secondary school in Jokela, so I’m working with kids at the age of 13 to 16. I mostly help the teachers during the lessons to make sure everybody does their the exercises. But I also sometimes play some games with the students or just have a talk with them in English or German. In my blog I just write about all my experiences and adventures I make and have!
