My experience doing European Voluntary Service (EVS) at Xchange Scotland can be summarised in one word: fulfilling.
Fulfilling of learning, development, stories, travel, laugh, and specially WORK. I worked a lot but I am not complaining, it gave me the opportunity to develop the skills I wanted to develop for long time but I didn’t have the chance to do so before.
It was a life changing experience that guided myself to my long-term career and helped me to get the job I was looking for.
It allowed me to learn about a lot of things I didn’t know about like sectarianism and Scottish culture and to go deeply in topics I’ve been working for years like creative activism and intercultural education.
The good side, I’m still connected with Xchange Scotland and still being helped to learn and develop myself in many different ways like being a mentor for EVS volunteers.
