Volunteering in Poland Cross-border education, culture and entrepreneurship

Hi, my name is Lina, I‘m 27 years old and I’m from Barcelona, ​​Spain. I chose volunteering in Poland and this project because in the trajectory of my life I have always volunteered, and these experiences have helped me grow as a person and develop my skills. Also, I had a personal interest in getting to know Poland and its culture.

Some of the activities I was doing in my project included, Spanish lessons, Yoga, Aerobics, Introduction to Spanish culture, Flamenco initiation, Jewelry workshop… Very diverse!

Although the duration of my volunteering in Poland and the project was short (it was cancelled because of Covid-19), I am very happy to have been able to be part of this experience. Meeting the people there and discovering more about Poland has been a real pleasure

Regarding my experience in Poland, I have to say that since it was the first time I did it I was a little scared, because I did not know what I was going to find: a new country, new people, new culture, new currency, another lifestyle, etc. . But all this changed since I arrived because all the people that I was in charge of treated me super well, they integrated me and helped me in everything I needed and that made my integration much easier and thanks to that I was able to meet a little more than a country that at first I was very excited to go.
