International Days in Social Work in Austria – I had the amazing opportunity to go to Austria and attend the International days of the social
work program. During this time I was able to attend a variety of lectures from experienced
people all over the world. Through participation, and discussion I was able to highlight my own
personal experiences as an indigenous person living in Mi’kma’ki, and the needs, and barries
for indigenous folk in Canada.
With this opportunity, I learned what other countries are doing to eliminate boundaries, further
education in social work, and so much more!
With my free time I built a strong connection with others from all around the world where I see
myself continuing the relationship, and to be able to network with in the future. From going out
to restaurants, and bars to visiting beautiful historical buildings, and landscape. Austria is rich in
history! From the Schönbrunn Palace and Hofburg Palace both in Vienna if your into Marie
Antoinette . Or even the trip to Salzburg where many of sound of music was recorded!
