Do you sometimes feel scared and excited at the same time? It means that this is exactly what you need. This is my EVS. My story. My Poland.
6 months have passed since I decided to change my life. For this time I have become another person. I am surrounded by different people, different cultures, I speak different languages and walk on different routes. But I have fallen in love with this “difference”. When I passed the stage of cultural shock, self-analysis and durable adaptation, I entered a completely different stage of my transformation. I communicate with great people, I have travelled to Italy, Vatican, Sweden, Norway, Germany, I have attended two trainings in Poland and got unforgettable emotions. But especially I need to note professional experience which is exactly why I came here.
I have been working in the best place in the world – European Solidarity Centre in Gdansk. For this time I have helped to organize dozens of projects: international exchanges, conferences, film festival, exhibitions, integrational meetings for immigrants etc. But the best thing is that I am not limited by only one task. On the contrary, I translate, interpret, prepare advertising materials, help conducting the meetings, and communicate with our guests from different countries. Currently I am working my own project idea; however, this is a completely different story :)
Apart from that, I always find time for friends, travelling and intercultural activities. I have a lot of plans, but not so much time. That is why my goal is to manage everything.
I have gone through the halfway of my EVS and I can assure you that this is the best decision in my life.
Don’t be afraid to take a risk, dare to change yourself with NGO “Stella”! :)
