Emmi, la voluntaria finlandesa en Numancia de La Sagra

I´m Emmi and I live in Numancia de la Sagra. I´m 20 years old and finished my studies in Finland this Spring.


I used to live in a small city with only 300 inhabitants. So Numancia is quiet big for me. Everything here is completely different than in Finland, but I´m enjoying my stay and I already made a lot of friends.

Now I work for proyecto Kieu at the Youth Center with children and youngsters. There I am together with Filiz who is also doing her EVS here. We have informatic classes for children and adults, english lessons, music classes, a radio project and a conversational english group called «English Coffee». We also help people who would like to do an european voluntary service.

The EVS is a part of Erasmus+ program and doing an European voluntary service exchange was an easy decision for me, because I don´t know what I would like to do for living or study. The possibility of having new ideas, experiences and learning about other cultures was something I couldn´t pass.
