A student voice

The part of the UWC philosophy that resonates best with my two years at Red Cross Nordic is discovery:
I have found and developed new skills, and been exposed to stories and issues that will stay with me in what I do as I go on.
Kurt Hahn summarised it well: at UWC I truly found that “there is more in you than you think”
