“I feel more mature, independent and confident” – Ruama about her EVS volunteer in the UK

I worked at Poppleton School with Ms Armstrong and it was an incredible experience. Basically I helped her in various activities in the classroom. I monitored children in their daily chores and play. I had the privilege of living with special children and this was very important for me, because I had never had this contact, they are incredible, loving and caring, I loved it. I was able to participate in celebrations like Roald Dahl Day (I characterized of Matilda), Hallowen and a beautiful presentation of Christmas made by the children for their parents.
The city of York is a wonderful place with lots of interesting history and beautiful places to visit. During my time there, I met great cafés, shops, museums and contemplated the city walking the walls around it and the view from there is just perfect. I also met Leeds, a larger city and also with beautiful scenery. I went to Glasgow and Edinburgh, amazing places and breathtaking landscapes. All the places I could meet were wonderful.
Participating in this project was a challenge for me, because it would be a new language, staying away from my family and friends, a new culture with different customs, but it was an incredible experience, it would be great if all the young people had the opportunity. I feel more mature, independent and more confident after this project, I was able to find what I really like to do, which makes me happy that it is working with children.
Thank you Erasmus +, Everything is Possible and Gol de Letra for giving me the most incredible experience of my life. Thank you Ms Armstrong for the patience and kindness you taught me and received me at the Poppletton School.
To the next!
