Miriam's September&October
Miriam's September&October

Hello guys, today I want to tell you about my EVS during the months of September and October.

They were very intense months and very exciting. First of all because I participated in the training in the middle of September, during which I got to know other European volunteers, other realities, then I started to create my own initiatives. About that, I did not expect so many young people attended EVS and at such a low age! It was a real surprise for me. I enjoyed a lot during those days, I learned so much about EVS in general and the principles and the values ​​that support it. At the beginning of September, I had a Latvian lesson in a cat shelter, but unfortunately my dust allergy didn't give me the possibility to involve myself that day :( It was very bad for me because I love animals. Another interesting activity was the week of Danish movies. In October I organized the Italian night, a really interesting party for me and for youngsters, because I introduced myself and my country. During that, there was 'Tiramisu workshop', it was really interesting to see how the boys tried theirselves in that activity. Then there was 'Pizza workshop' during another event here. In October I finally organized the first Italian lessons. I am very happy about this because I have two really good students! Lastly, now there is in course a project proposed and edited by me: the Photovoice. This gives the possibility to detect through photography the strengths and weaknesses of the city. During the first meeting I explained the objectives and activities to the participants, after which I shared questionnaires to obtain information about them, about their opinion on this and other similar projects. Eventually during the second meeting, Ralfs, our photographer, explained the characteristics of photography. I will keep you updated on the progress of my project and other activities :) Have a great November!
