I have experienced and taken part in the activities stated above within the scope of Kingston Wadokai ‘s work programme. It was a great experience for me to be as an internship in Kingston Wadokai during one month. Kingston Wadokai is a social enterprise. It is also a big opportunity for me to work and study in a social enterprise which is have been rarely set up in our country.
I attended the internship program of Kingston Wadokai which focused on being as active as possible during Covid-19, the internship program included were the amazing activities that specialize on the local talented youths. It was wonderful to attending poetry nights and singing in times of the global crisis in an amazing country like UK. In addition to the other contributions of these activities which support teamwork skills and intercultural interaction, they developed my language education. These activities also acted in coordination with some of my lessons. While I learned the emphasis on social roles gained with gender in the my Gender Equality Course, I learned to overcome this structural emphasis in events at Kingston Wadokai. I applied one by one the levels of methodological methods which I learned in the Research Skills Course in the tasks assigned to me in the projects. I used the techniques I learned in the Advanced Writing Skills Course in the reports I wrote in England. Thanks to Kingston Wadokai, I had the opportunity to put my educational skills I learned in the courses into practice. I learned that other members who attended the event shared the same view as me. During Covid-19 Crisis, although the events were local, but they were welcomed by young people like me and became extremely popular. It was a great opportunity for me to meet talented young people from different nationalities and singing with them historical songs about their nations peacefully. Among the written reviews, the number of people who want to experience this internship again is quite high. Andrew Beacock worked in coordination with Hull BackPackers in behalf of Kingston Wadokai which aiming to provide young people with required skills such as leadership, problem-solving techniques and effective communication skills. To sum up, it was wonderful to be in Kingston Wadokai and spend time with talented local youth in this time of crisis.
