Young and unemployed: What's your story?
"Live (Y)OUR Greece In Myth"
As my fellow Greeks wrote on a wall during last week's protests, we can only do it this way: Live OUR Greece in myth and not the other way round. We can't live our myth in Greece since it's not possible to even live in Greece!
Government and all politicians, banks and those who have the power (and the money) destroyed OUR Greece! And they keep doing this pretending to do the "right" thing. They destroyed our lives and they destroy our dreams!
I'm a 19 year old student who left her country in order to study abroad, who chose the least expensive university because my family couldn't afford anything more expensive than that. I've been dreaming of being a doctor since I was 5 and now that I finally made it, they want to take it away and there's nothing I can do, but HOPE that everything is going to be ok.
Right now I consider myself one of the "lucky" ones, because - thank God - I'm not starving (yet). I guess I'll have to wait till the next day though, to see if I'll be able to live an ordinary life or just survive...
