“MVP: Movement of Volunteers for Parks” 
(1.03.2013-31.08.2013)

 

Luis

“Hello, my name is Luis and I am from Seville, Spain. After finishing my studies in advertising I decided I wanted to dedicate my life to an activity not related to businesses and started introducing me to the world of volunteering. It's something I want to do professionally in the future and I think the EVS is the best option to open the doors to that world.


I chose Greece for their links with the art world in which I am very interested now, and because there wasn’t a big cultural leap. I wanted to get started in the world of volunteering in an environment familiar to me and then look for something more daring.
Specifically I chose KEAN because it offered me a very flexible work as it allows me to develop my limited knowledge of design and perform handcraft task and outside in a garden, something totally unknown to me and I want to know about it. I live very close to the centre, allowing me to visit all the important monuments, and in summer I can even visit some island.


I hope when I go back home to be more independent, have removed language barriers and my dream is to learn to draw. I think I can transmit to my organization my enthusiasm, creativity and inspire them with my philosophy of life.”

 

Risko

”I have studied political science and Ι have travelled extensively in Australia and Europe. My home town is Tallinn, which is the seaside capital of Estonia of 400 000 people. I came to Greece to do something different, see the world from and enjoy my life. I like yoga and, healthy living and becoming a better person every day. While here I hope to improve my skills involving photography, growing plants and perhaps tour guiding. I also like to learn basic Greek for everyday life and be able to read and write in it in to some degree. Also I would like to create my own personal project to give something back for the hospitality I have received.”
