EVS in Pippola, Finland, has been an overall good experience because I have learned a lot and not only knowledge about the language of the country or its culture but also I have learnt more aspects about myself.

Piippola is a very small town, without too much to do and sometimes it is quite desperate, but its population has received me with a smile and with much desire to learn aspects of my culture.

I must say that the project has finally shaped with the proposal of new activities, ideas and participation, since in the first instance, the tasks were focused 90% doing activities in a cafeteria with little clientele. But that is precisely one of the things that I liked: innovate and adapt, as well as make the local people adapt to new proposals.
