My name is Marei Hanecke and I am from Germany. I joined the YoYo team in late September and will stay with them until before Christmas. In Germany I study to become a teacher for English and History and in my free time I like to do some youth work in churches or local community centres. I chose to do my work placement at YoYo's because I like the way they work and try to get children think about faith and what religion means to themselves. I have now been here for a week and already fell like being part of something special. Everybody cares for everybody else and this feeling of community can easily be conveyed in schools as well. I am sure that I will get a lot out of my time with YoYo and will at later times of my life look back with a smile and thankfulness.
