One can come into contact with sound technology and the media
I’m Lukas. I’m 15 years old and come from Berlin. I was born in Nordrhein-Westfalen, in Troisdorf near Bonn to be precise. Owing to my mother’s interest in democratic education and democratic schooling we moved to Hamburg. I attended the Democratic School in Hamburg for one year until we moved to Berlin. In the capital city my mother established “the Democratic School X.”
Due to my mother I attended two separate meetings of EUDEC. EUDEC stands for European Democratic Education Community. The first meeting was in Israel, the second in PuertoRico in the Caribbean. Puerto Rico was a beautiful city with lovely beaches. Israel was also interesting, especially the Western Wall in Jerusalem. I met a lot of new people and gained many new experiences. Owing to certain circumstances I left the Democratic School.
I now attend another school, where I participate in the “Productive Learning” program. The main aim of the program is to gather work experience. It means I spend three days a week doing an internship and two days in school. So far I have held internships in a video game store, car repair shop and in a restaurant. I currently attend the Ernst Schering School in Wedding in Berlin. Finally, I’d like to add something about my hobbies. I like music, football and going out with friends. I am particularly interested in music and in computers. I currently live in Wedding, and the sheer amount of festivals, concerts and events is what I especially like about Berlin. I feel that work on the radio would be interesting because one can come into contact with sound technology and the media.
