I am so excited now sitting in front of the computer! Guess why? It's my first time writing for a newspaper! I hope it won't bore you to death!
It's my first time traveling to an European country on my own. It's a bit like an adventure to me. I am from Hong Kong which is an Eastern country. I came here as a development trainee through AIESEC. I am an English teacher here, but my English is the worst among my group! I felt quite depressed because I even find it difficult to chat with other AIESECERs. I somehow feel a bit lonely and homesick. Fortunately, I have a very nice roommate who is called Diana. We shared our feelings and thoughts, and we are good friends now. Other AIESECERs are also kind to me. Though we don't talk a lot, I can feel it. It suprised me when a hungarian took an initiative to approach me and talk to me. He tried to encourage me with his own story. I felt so lucky that I met a lot of nice guys in Hungary! I talked to several hungarian girls, and I am glad that they seem to like me. Things are getting better, and I start to enjoy life in Hungary.
I am not sure if some of you recognize me in the camp. If you remember me, you probably think that I am quiet and detached. In fact, I talk a lot and laugh out loud in my country. My friends always think perhaps there's problem with my brain because I'm always laughing and sometimes going crazy. It's hard to imagine, right? I only show this side of me in front of people I am familiar with. People automatically hide the true side of themselves whenever they meet new people. I can't force myself to be my true self. It comes naturally when I get closer with one. I am sure you will be shocked if you see this side of me.
