Hi, my name is Madalena and I live in Sintra with my family.
I lived in Terceira Island, in the Azores, for 3 years.
Right now I am trying to get funds to join a big adventure called “School at Sea”.
I found this project through Julia and Emilia, two sisters that just like us, were living in Terceira Island and joined School at Sea in the last 2 years.
School at Sea is a program based on learning through experience, responsibility and knowledge of the world.
This Dutch project, full of challenges and new experiences, that I am sure will be unforgettable, is surely going to change my vision of the world and help me to grow as a person.
I have no doubt that if I join School at Sea, the person I am today and the person I will be when I arrive will be really different. That is one of the reasons why I want to join School at Sea.
I always liked to visit new places and travel, I also really like the sea and I always lived close to it. So, the idea of spending 6 months discovering new places of the world, exploring them and learning about them seems amazing to me.
I also find important the relation I will create with the other students that will be joining me in this project. While living this adventure, they are going to be my family, it will be with them that I will share my emotions and I am sure that we will create a strong relationship.
I really want to make this dream come true.
And although it still appears to me as a really distant reality, I know I can get it!
