A year that I will never forget - ESC

  • Can you summarize your ESC year in one or two sentences?

It was a challenging experience for me, but all of these challenges made my experience unforgettable.

  • What were your most memorable moments?

My most memorable moment was the concert for Mozambique. With this simple concert, we have raised money in support of the people who were in danger because of the Cyclone Idai.

  • What was your biggest challenge? How did you deal with it?

The biggest challenge was the language because IniciativAngola is a bilingual organization and my biggest challenge was to learn a bit of both languages (German and Slovenian).

  • Did you enjoy your work and how did you get along with your colleagues?

The work was great but a little bit stressful. When I came for this project, I was interested to see how one NGO works. Working with Marija, Hanzej and Ema were good, not everything was as we wanted but that makes part of our experience. I enjoyed doing and being part of the projects of the organization.

  • In the end, would you recommend this experience to someone else, and why?

This was one of the best experiences of my life; a year that I will never forget. I recommend this experience to everyone because I learned so much and I grew as a person. I wish everyone would be able to live an experience as I did.

Carolina Figueiredo from Portugal, ESC: 01.10.2018 - 31.08.2019
