Lorena, Mentee aus Mexiko
„The most important experience in this project for me is that I could meet people from different countries and studies. Nowadays it is so hard to know new people in Germany due to COVID-19. When I moved to Heilbronn I thought I will be alone the whole master and nobody who can support me in some issues that can happen, however, I had the support of my mentor who is studying the same as me."
Elizaveta, Mentee aus Russland
„The most difficult parts for me personally were paper work, registration in the city, language barrier and integration. I was also confused about my arriving in terms of where should I go, how can I collect a key from my student apartments etc. I was wondering how I`m going to meet people in this Corona time. I had so many questions unanswered.
After getting to know Tina, I became more calm about all this issues I`m going to face. She was extremely helpful in any term of my question. She made me feel like there is nothing to be scared about, I felt like she will be always there to help."
Lena, Mentor aus Deutschland
„Die interkulturellen Workshops waren sehr aufschlussreich durch seine diversen Aufgaben und behandelten Themen. Durch das Projekt habe ich eine sehr nette Person kennengelernt und von deren Leben und Kultur erfahren. Zu sehen, wie sich die Person nach und nach mehr öffnete fand ich besonders motivierend."
