While getting ready for another GROW edition and preparing the sessions, we wondered how are the former trainers doing. So we asked them to write down a message for you, the teenagers who participated in this project, in order to remember the beautiful moments spent together with them.

GROW was an extraordinary experience! I cannot get out of my mind the moment when I shared some Argentinians sweets and all the teenagers loved them…

I think that GROW is a really enriching experience because it brings them a country that is really far away and not culturally close to the reality of Romania (like Argentina). I can remember the faces of all of them when I was talking about my country, or when I teached them to dance a traditional dance.

GROW gave me the possibility to deliver classes in another language, so if I managed to catch the teenagers’ attention for MORE than one hour, now I’m prepared to teach everyone! :))

To all my GROW teens: KEEP BEING YOURSELF, not what someone else is waiting of you, but just YOU. And do not forget to ask, to have an active attitude and to be curious about all what is happening around the world. Get out of the box!
