raquel portrait
»My extra wishes (e.g. travel, clothes) have changed as a result of the crisis. I live more consciously and keep a close eye on my spending. The current situation has opened my eyes towards the society and politics.
All bear responsibility for the situation and an important reason is corruption among politicians, not only here, but also in other European countries and the United States.
I am getting very skeptical and have no more trust in the politicians. It's very difficult to change the situation, however it's not impossible. We need time and there must be a change in our mentality.
I want to finish my studies here and then do my master's degree in a foreign country (England or Germany). Personally, I would like to stay here, but for professional reasons, I have to emigrate probably.«
— Raquel, 18 years old, studies languages and international relations
