Here I am!

Hi my name is Federica, I’m 27 and just one week ago officially began my experience here in Lisbon as an EVS volunteer.
Before to decide to apply for this opportunity I hadn’t planned anything but unfortunately my job contract would have expired a few days later. Everything happened almost by chance even if I’ve always had the idea on my mind to do this kind of experience before getting too old. So, I found the vacancy, applied, did all the interviews with the hosting association and - go!! Everything in less than a month!
And now, here I am since almost one month and everything seems to be amazing!
From the first moment, all the team of my hosting organization made us feel like home, and supported us in all we needed. That’s why I feel that even if we began just one week ago, we already are a “Big Family”: all the Check-IN team, other EVS volunteers from different countries, local volunteers or simply friends.
Along this adventure, which will last until next October, I hope I will manage to support the Team in all the activities as much as I can and at the same time take with me experiences and unforgettable life moments.
Next step: on arrival training in Braga! Hoping it will be a moment to share with a lot of new people and volunteers from different EVS projects here in Portugal.
