“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for a newer and richer experience” – Eleanor Roosevelt
I was informed about my selection for the 2017 P and E exchange programme amidst so much excitement. I had so many preconceived expectations of Germany as a country hence I was looking forward to experience a different culture and learn as much as possible. And, for sure, my expectations were well surpassed. The programme spanned a total of seven weeks in two cities; Berlin (three weeks) and Mainz (four weeks).
