Teaching children, living in new environment, meeting locals and foreigners has changed me a lot.
I was volunteer 9 months in Children’s Library and I can say that was a wonderful experience.
New people, different activities, more new people, traveling, living with other volunteers like one big happy CRAZY family, doing all these 'first times in your life', making new friends. I just loved it!
There is no such thing as an Evs experience in Russia!
Six months full of activities, travelling, meeting new people, cooking and eating new meals, ...
And even if it was sometimes hard because I didn’t speak Russian, there was all the time somebody who was ready to help me.
Wish all the future volunteers to USE all those precious moments during EVS, because they will not happen again!
This volunteering year gave me without any doubt the chance to meet people from everywhere in Europe and beyond but also to get to know better the Russian way of life and the language.
