On Saturday we hosted a Living Library at School 18, and with the help of my friends who acted as Books and Translators, we had a really great time. Initially Olga and I were a little disappointed that only 2 of our students participated, but after some discussion we decided that it’s useless to be continually disappointed with the lack of enthusiasm shown by teenagers (because really, will that ever end?) but rather we should focus our energies on the two students who came to school on a Saturday without their friends. I know that when I was their age I was too petrified to do anything unless my friends would be doing it too.
So, molodyets Yegor and Sasha, my perpetual participants.
