It was really helpful to have SCA. It was something that wasn’t completely different because many things were so different, like my school and living in a host family. The SCA seemed to be pretty much the same: lots of nice people who were doing pretty crazy things.

Most of my friends from Finland and here think I’m an absolute weirdo; they just don’t understand it at all. One of my friends from Finland tells me the only reason I must be doing this is because there’s lots of good-looking young men in SCA.
