Pubblichiamo in lingua l’articolo scritto da Silvia sul futuro del suo paese, la Finlandia.
Abbiamo scelto di farla scrivere in Inglese per permetterle di esprimere al meglio il proprio pensiero (nonostante la ragazza stia imparando l’italiano con ottimi risultati!) e perché ci piace l’idea che anche i suoi compagni in Finlandia possano così leggere la sua riflessione.
Per noi integrazione è anche questo
buona lettura a tutti,
I think Finland is one of the most best places in the world to be a child or a parent. As a parent you have Finland as the most perfect platform to raise your child in. In Finland people and especially children are safe. You can let your child go out with his/her friends without having the fear that something might happen to them. Every child gets free and obligatory education from ages seven to sixteen. After elementary school, children can continue to high school or vocational school that are free, but not obligatory. Every child has free healthcare system to look after his health and other services organized by municipalities of Finland, for example free hobbies, parks and other public places. As a child, you are not expected to do anything else than enjoy your childhood and most importantly, expand your knowledge of the world and learn new skills so someday you will be an intelligent Finnish adult who has a great positive impact on our country.
I see the future of Finland very bright. Already now, things are very good and to be honest, I wouldn’t change many things. In Finland we all try our best to make our country better day by day, so our children would have a good country to take care of in the future. Of course there are some people who are not working towards our common goals, but I believe that the change of generations will make Finland even more modern and uniform. The future of Finns depends on people themselves. Everyone is accepted and as important as anyone else. Your worth doesn’t depend on your wealth, your family or your point of view. You are not defined according to your values in life. It is a great responsibility to have freedom like this and so many opportunities. Finns can have a significant and important life, but it depends on themselves. No one is going to make your future for you, you have to do the work by yourself. But luckily, the most wonderful thing in Finland is that if something bad happens to you or even that if everything goes wrong, our society will help you get back up and start again.
In Finland you are born with a good future, but that does not directly mean that your future will be good. You never know what might happen and every person’s future is totally personal. But In Finland, you have the best platform to achieve anything you want in life and in times of difficulty you are not left alone. For Finns, future is not something that happens on accident. Our future is made by intelligent, honest and caring citizens of Finland that are taking part in the never ending journey of learning from the past and working for tomorrow.
