I got a chance to be a member of Krik because i love and enjoy playing Volley ball. I was inspired by one of my Contact Family who is a student and the University of Agder in Kristiansand, Norway who encouraged me to join Krik once a week.

ARTICLE ON MY EXPERIENCE WITH EDUCATION CAREER FAIR IN NORWAY.
Young people across the world are studying and most of them never knew what they want to become, what to do, or what career they should take, this creates problem in terms of career selection. With this I happen to visit the career education fair in Norway that is held every year for the young high school teenagers in SØrlandshallen in Kristiansand, Norway.

One of the most interesting culture i have lived and seen while my stay in Norway is being responsible enough of our actions especially in terms of waste disposal.
I found this one of the smart and interesting culture / business one has to be responsible of despite of status.And there you earn some good money from the bottles written on pants.This is one way or another  of recycling which is the efficient plans that is taught by locals in Norway since childhood.

This is one of the Program to help,preserve and protect nature.In the state with empty bottles, you can redeem many of them and you sell your plastic  bottles  to a recycling centres  or stores that accepts plastic bottles  top earn some cash,usually 2 to 3 Krone a bottle. You pay the deposit when you buy the product, so redeeming these empties is a great way to recycle while   putting a little change back in your pocket depending on how much you have collected.
