This year volunteers are: Marija from Croatia and Monika from Poland.
Marija was born on 02.02.1993 in Zagreb (Croatia). She is studying Theology on University of Zagreb. In summer 2013 and 2014 she has been participating in programme of EU “Youth in action” in Croatia and Spain. Inspired by volunteering with spanish people she decided to take a “fallow year” and do something diiferent and challenging.
“While doing my studies, I realized that I want to enrich my life with something new and take some time to develope new skills. When I’ve found out about the EVS it seemed like a great oportunity to do something good for society and in the same time grow in a personal way.”
Monika was born on 27.05.1992 in Poznan, Poland. She has a bachelor´s degree in National Security and she is studying Spanish Language on University of Poznan. She has lots of experience in work with children in Clubs and scouting. That’s one of the reasons why she decided to participate in this project. She also wanted to improve her Spanish and to meet a new culture.
“During this months in Spain, doing my EVS, I have realized that this experience changed me in a lots of ways and also changed my point of view. I gain a lot as a person but aloso as a volunteer. I would recommend EVS to everyone!”
