As I was in the MEJ I noticed how sharing daily life during camps and hikes improved young people's relationships through simple acts of helping each other while hiking, cleaning, or cooking something. In fact, I have always believed that traveling is the best means of bringing people closer to each other while bridging the gaps and overcoming preconceptions and prejudice. I believe that MAGIS holds the same ability but on a larger scale of bringing people from different parts of the world together with their own ideas, traditions, and visions, letting them share their daily lives, experience diversity, and celebrate it in a safe environment.
On the other hand, by participating in this unique experience, I hope to dive deeper into myself as I have always felt more free and comfortable in nature and establish meaningful connections that last way beyond the ten days.
Furthermore, MAGIS presents the ideas and efforts of Croatian youth that helped prepare the diverse experiences and introduce us to the Croatian community, which I think is the most wholesome way to give by sharing parts of your life. I hope by participating in MAGIS I can also be a part of this process trying to help each other live this experience to the fullest.
