This experience begins with a crazy energy charge.
I desired to do a project with the European Solidarity Corps since it was called European Voluntary Service, but the first real possibility materialized before the outbreak of the pandemic, when I was selected for a project that then I decided to give up because it seemed more supportive and empathetic to be close and operating within my local community in Trieste and Muggia (Italy) where I’m from.
At the end of 2021 the news of having been selected for the "Organic Life Ideas in Action" project in Maribor and Jarenina (Slovenia), overwhelmed me with enthusiasm and pride: finally I could combine European volunteering with rural life, which for some years I wanted to discover more deeply.
Below you can find the collage of my first month in the ESC experience in Slovenia: a conglomerate of photos, keywords, quotes from my diary and creativity with which I wanted to express myself not to forget the highlights. It is an introspective creation of a month that I spent immersed in myself & among new people with serenity and sometimes challenge both to which I tried to give maximum space, welcoming what came with open arms.
See you next month! :3
