Q: How does the EU influence your day-to-day life?

I can travel freely within the EU, study abroad, shop and order goods. Also there is no more roaming in the EU which was a huge change in my everyday life.

 

Q: When you think about the EU, what is the first picture that comes to your mind?

A: Better together.

 

Q: End the sentence: “Twenty years from now the EU … “

A: A giraffe: tall with a long neck allowing to have a broad view, like the EU that has an overview over all Member States from above.

 

Q: Is there a dish (in your country) that describes Europe best, and why?

A: An octopus with potatoes baked under a peka (bell-like lid). The powerful octopus represents the centre of the EU and all Member States around it.
