eva portrait
»I wasn't affected much personally. Of course I worked harder for less money and there were not as many opportunities to go to study somewhere else because it became really expensive. And the loan, which I got for school was cut back.
My mother lost her house, but she got it back by just working even harder.
After 2008 the amount of artistic and creative thinking grew and not everyone was thinking any longer about buying a new car or house. Also a lot of music has grown out of the crisis.
Around me people became more helpful after the crash, but I don't have any confidence in our politicians at the moment. I'm planning to study even if I am uncertain about it and I will always have some home here.«
