Time’s up! Team up! – the first volunteering team

 

Romain from France

Hi, I’m Romain. I’m from the south of France in a town called “La Seyne Sur Mer”. It is close to Marseille and I’m 26 years old.

I have a bachelor’s in psychology I’m kind of on a gap year before starting a master’s degree. I love traveling and meeting people from different countries with different cultures. I lived in Edinburgh for a bit.

My goal is to open an organization that will help the young from 16y to 30y in orientation, insertion, and guidance. I want to reduce inequality in school. I also love interculturality and what that can bring you.

 


Mariam from Georgia

My name is Mariam, I am 20 years old and I am from Georgia. I was born in Imereti, one of the most beautiful parts of Georgia, now I live in Tbilisi as I am currently studying for a bachelor’s degree in political science at Tbilisi State University. In addition to political science, which is my major, I study journalism and mass communication as I am also interested in journalism, especially analytical journalism, I love writing about interesting issues.
I like to spend time productively and interestingly and for that, I use all the resources I have. I especially like being in the multicultural atmosphere that contains values built on individualism, the promotion of interaction between people from different backgrounds- being part of this is really challenging for me. Today is the fourth day of my being here, but I can already feel the positive changes in me- this kind of international environment, new experiences, the process of exchanging opinions between people from different countries and backgrounds is a prerequisite for self-development. I am really happy to be here with so many interesting people and I am grateful for this opportunity.


Soso from Georgia

My name is Soso and I am from Georgia. I am 20 years old. I was born in Kakheti and after school, I moved to the Tbilisi, capital city of Georgia. I am studying law at Tbilisi State University.

In my free time, I like reading books, listening to music and watching films. I also like to have fun with friends.

Now I am taking part in the project ‘Times up! Team up!’ in INPRO and I am very grateful for this opportunity because I can improve my skills, learn new skills, improve my English, I can traveling and meet new people from different countries.

It is my first experience being abroad and it is very interesting. I think after this project I will be more independent and communicable. Rzeszow is very beautiful so I like walking in this city. Also, in the future, I want to continue volunteering and try another volunteering program in another country.

I’m Victoria Luaces, I am from Spanish (I’m living there now) but I was born in Venezuela (Latin America) so I have a mix of cultures and traditions in me!

I joined this project because, as I said, I love social projects, sharing with people and I think this is an amazing way to get closer to my dreams and life projects. Also, I believe that every culture and every person has a lot to give so I wanted to meet and knew the most I can from my new friends and their perspectives, and also try to improve my skills (especially practice my English).

Haseeb from Pakistan

Scratch here ▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒ to unveil my secret bio. Hurray! You did it 🙂 I am Haseeb, an international student in Hungary since 2019, and originally from Pakistan. I am an aspiring electrical engineer with a deep interest in making robots and artificial intelligence (AI). While being in Europe, my goal is to explore western culture, landmarks, history, and languages. Reading books, natural and architectural photography, playing ping-pong, and countries are my free-time activities. I always to try to find a connection between living humans and non-living things, and I believe that everything in this world works on the same pattern, and gets damaged or extinct due to the same causes (they just look different). Being to help someone anyway, anywhere, gives me internal happiness. Back in Pakistan, I am a founding member of a non-profit organization, that raises funds for deserving students, organizes free nutrition camps and financially supports needy families. NOW, I am determined to volunteer at the international level, learn from amazing people around me and share my skills with them, thus, to keep our community always smiling.

Susanna from Georgia

I am Susanna Marabyan from Georgia, a 3rd-year University student.  I study international relations and I am interested in learning different languages.  I consider myself an ambitious person who always tries to make changes in life and make new adventures.

In my opinion, the university and school do not teach us everything we need to live, so I am always looking for more to learn something new, acquire new skills and just become the best version of myself.

The INPRO organization gave me such an opportunity in this volunteer project in the small city Rzeszow, which has already taken a small place in my heart.
