I am Amaly, the new EVS volunteer of A.C. Patria. Now it is my turn to continue Luca's job and be responsible for "Time to change". I am going to write here about my EVS and just the days which happen in Kaunas.
But wait... I am not the only volunteer here who can share experience, there are so many cool guys who have interesting stories and I do hope they will share them here with you too.
Well, here I am... (I am sending you my big smile)
When you wake up on your own, make breakfast only for you, check the bus timetable and when you are always late and you are running for taking it, then you start your work with pleasure and add some notes in your agenda, then after work you go to supermarket and take the food which are on sale and for the evening you meet your friends in a pub and have fun, so congratulations dear... you are an EVS volunteer.
It is already 2 months that I live in Kaunas like that and I really like my new life style. Yeah... to be an EVS volunteer is so cool, first of all you live far from your country and family and you start to learn how to survive alone. And the coolest thing is that actually you are not alone you are surrounded with new colleagues, with many EVS volunteers and also with strangers from a new nation for you. Of course there are also some challenges with which you faced in the beginning or still everyday, but for now I would like to be short and keep these stories for the future posts. (come on, it is my introductory post)
P.S. I would like also share some information about me so as you to know me a little bit better. I am from Armenia, I am 21 and I am journalist by profession. I graduated from the university last year finishing my Bachelor degree. I also worked for an Armenian newspaper, I had some internships in different radio and TV companies, and finally before coming here I worked for news in a TV company for 7 months.
I like my profession very much and I like to write, find stories, make reports, take photos so in a word I like to create. I will create here too, promise.
So for now bye bye, see you soon with new stories by my friends and me.
