New Adventure of Beatriz

In the beginning of this month, I’ve got the confirmation I was going to Slovenia for 12months. Starting already in July! I couldn’t be more proud of myself and happy for having Check-in’s support in this new adventure.
The countdown has started: the calls to the people I love the most, the last exams from university, going home for a few days, the last goodbyes…
It’s a big new challenge in my life, I spent a lot of time looking for a project I identified with and I found this one about environmental protection in the country I wanted the most. But watch out! I needed to go earlier than I could because I needed to be there by the 1st of June and I’m finishing my bachelor by the end of June. Well I kept trying and I was pretty LUCKY. I’ve got accepted to go in July and the 1 month run before the departure just started!

Preparation time in Check In :)

I’ve already started packing! Thinking about what I need and what I can actually put in a suitcase for a year. Summer clothes… Winter shoes… Where am I gonna put the books? Thinking minimal and taking only what I REALLY need.
I’m super excited about this new adventure, specially because I can already call myself graduated! I’ve done my bachelor and a year off will help me to find myself and to understand what I want to do with my life in the future. I’ve done other intercultural projects before and I’ve travelled a bit as well, I’ve done volunteering work, but now it’s all other level. I’m becoming an EVS Volunteer for a all year in a country I’m fascinated with, about a subject that interests me a lot. I couldn’t ask for more and tomorrow I have the last reunion before the big trip!
Wish me luck,
