Hello everyone, I am Huda from Malaysia. I am one of the PEACE Program participants for this year and currently hosted in Austria.

First thing first, I would really like to thank AFS for giving me this opportunity to be in Austria! It is really fun getting to know a new culture, new friends and be the youth peace maker, as well as learning more about being a global citizen.

I would like to share my first day of schooling here in Austria.

On the first day we started with some team building exercises to get to know each other better since we had a week full of work just ahead of us. The first lunch was quite an experience. Every dish is something new. And some of the Indian food and spi...

Greetings from India!

My adventure started on June 12th. I was really excited about having a chance to be not only in Delhi, but also Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Thanks to Priya, I could experience so many aspects of this country – a host family life, schools, NGOs and its cultural side. Of course, I was also a bit nervous. As this was the first time I traveled to India, I was afraid if I will be able to survive the heat and the humidity.

In Ahmedabad I had an opportunity to stay with a lovely host family...
