THE STORY:

my fundraise was made to the American organization seeds of peace.
I am 15 years old and I was a camper in the international seeds of peace camp in Maine.
I was absolutely amazed by all the things that happened to me there it was a turning point in my life.
seeds of peace is a camp that in some way made in order to have a peace especially between conflict areas and his target is making, wising for peace from the young generation.
since I was a child I was raised on basic values but they never had such weight as they had when I came back from camp.
friendship, giving opportunity to each other, listening, respect acceptance.
every day we had dialogue with people from "the other side" of the conflict and we talked about main subjects that both sides has disagreement about them and the way of solving them.
it was really powerful and emotional for everyone and for example I've been through process that affected me in so many levels.
in addition like every camp we had activities such as: art, waterski, football, soccer, basketball, lacrosse etc. that really helped us feel more united and strengthened our friendship.
I am so thankful to seeds of peace because I had the chance to get to know the "enemy", what he thinks, on which values he had been raised, his behavior and I have to say that some of the things that I thought about them were completely wrong . I discovered a lot of new things from being there.
seeds of peace will be my family and I will be thankful for what they gave me as long as the sky remains blue.
