I am from Prague, a beautiful city in the middle of the Czech Republic.
I’ve been staying at my uncle’s house while backpacking. I’ve also been living out of a big blue Nissan limousine campervan, parked in some of the most beautiful places around Australia.
Four months after my arrival in Australia, I realised how much I missed singing and being party of a community choir. Being part of With One Voice was an amazing experience.
There are so many things I enjoyed, the possibility to talk to friendly people, which is extremely precious for a stranger who is struggling with the language and feeling a bit lost and dispossessed.
Thanks to With One Voice Brisbane I am able to get to know local people who provided me with advice, and helpful tips on where to go and what to see in this beautiful country.
I also got the feeling that every Wednesday night I belonged somewhere.
