teresa portrait
»So far, nothing has changed in my life as a consequence of the crisis, but we have observed a reduction in spending power in my family and in our circle of friends and I know other students, who are in difficulties.
When I'm watching the news on TV, I think that my generation should shape the future and that we have to reassess our mentality.
All of us should change a little bit, the Government can't do everything on its own. After the end of the dictatorship in Portugal we handled money in a sloppy way, for example there were some people who bought something, just to distinguish themselves from others.
My future is uncertain and I'm worried similar to many young people, because we don't know what's going to happen. We try to make the best out of it and we'll wait and see what happens.
I would like to go abroad, because I love to travel and could mix business with pleasure.«
— Teresa, 17 years old, high school student
