My name is Florentine Imeri, I'm 17 years old and I'm from Frankfurt, Germany.
I'm one of the members of the “My adopted soldier” project. The first time our teacher told us about it I was kind of nervous but happy to be a part of this project.
I was nervous to talk to the Irish students and exchange my knowledge with them about the first world war. We had to prepare a presentation about a soldier and present the soldier in front of the students. I prepared a presentation about nurses or rather women in World War I. Some of the students had the honour to present their soldier at the cemetery of the soldiers.
I did not expect that I would learn so much from this project. First of all, I thought it's going to be a boring trip and really strenuous. It was strenuous but such an honour. We visited lots of cemeteries, a museum and the European Parliament. I would do a project like this every time again. Even if it was really strenuous and I was afraid to talk free in English.
