Ciao, I am Till, 18 years old, from Wiesbaden in Germany (a city near to Frankfurt). I have finished Highschool this summer, where I have also learnt Italian quite well.
There are many things I like to do in my free time. The things I have done most in my first weeks here were: playing the guitar, going to the sea, reading and doing something with the new friends we have already found. Further on I like sports you do with other people (in Germany I played football and tennis), and in winter I often go Snowboarding. I also like music and poetry a lot.
My motivation to do a voluntary project is, that I became aware of how fortunate I am to have a beautiful life without any real problems and that at the same time there are so many people in the world that are much less fortunate. Therefore I want to use the privilege I have to help other people that are facing problems in their life. I want to do something meaningful and good.
At the same time I wanted to use the opportunity to go and live abroad with the aim to make new experience and new friends. I am happy to have found a project in Italy, because I really love the country, its culture and the people here.
Ciao! My name is Ainhoa, I am 22 and I am from Bilbao in the Basque Country (north of Spain). Recently graduated from university at Primary Education, I decided to board this volunteering to have a life experience.
I love traveling as well as learning new languages and cultures, and this opportunity provides me both. Now, I am learning Italian from the ground and I am happy to receive help from the people I am meeting. In my free time I like reading, running and doing any kind of leisure activities with my friends.
My personal motivation to do this voluntary is based on the fact that I enjoy participating in social initiatives. My previous experiences in volunteering made feel good with myself and made be believe that a better society is possible. Therefore, as soon as I found this opportunity to life abroad while fighting social injustices, I was doubtless to take it. Moreover, I think this experience will challenge myself in many aspects and that will help me to decide what is the next step I want to take in my professional career.
By the moment it has been an amazing experience and I feel that already found my place here!
