interview nicolo-converted-page-001 3 Why Slovakia? What interested you in this country?

Honestly, I sent my first two applications to Greece and Portugal (I didn't mind the idea of being surrounded by the sea). I didn't get answers from these countries, so I decided to try in Slovakia.

I decided to become a volunteer after ending my studies, I did not felt in the proper environment (I like what I was studying but not the way it was made) it was boring for me. I wanted to do something real, to meet new people and see other countries/cultures, I first did an Erasmus+ in Brussels at CORESO (I was in the administrative part) for 5 months, and now I am here in KERIC.

AlzbetaCover Well, I don't know how, but I've already swung into the other half of my EVS. This is evidenced by the fact that I was at Mid-Term training a week ago.

It was an exhausting 3 days full of talking, complaining, getting to know each other... I have to say that I enjoyed it and I found that even though my project is not all pink, there are also worse projects, but mainly that EVS is about me and it's up to me how I make it.

zuzana01It is hard to believe that already four months have passed since the beginning of my EVS in Lancaster. Since I first came to Lancaster and Morecame College in the north of England, a lot has happened. Countless experiences have been added to me, I have met many inspiring people, seen many interesting places and gained many valuable experiences.

Apart from this, I will cooperate with two other schools and I hope to get the chance to work in a social centre for people with disabilities as well. The time here in slovakia has been great so far, I really like the organisation and all these nice and enthusiastic people around it. I am convinced that this is going to be an amazing and enriching time for me ;)
