South Africa makes me happy. I’m from Germany and came to South Africa to volunteer at a children’s hospital in 2014. I went back to Germany and it took me two years to convince my parents to allow me to return to study. I wanted to come back because the country makes me happy – the weather, the beaches, the people, everything … except the crime. Another thing that makes me happy is that I have just finished my final exam for the year. I’m studying economics – I’m not sure why because I don’t actually want to be an economist.
