My name is Mariam, but after many confusions I just agreed that people could call me PIPIA.
After finishing high school I decided to learn something which is connected to communication, people and government. So i chose to study Social Sciences, but as many other people’s lives, mine also changed during covid lockdowns. I spend the whole first year of university online, and after that i thought that I needed something different.
Many of my friends who also were volunteering in ESC, advised me that it would be a great decision if I would
do some project in Europe. After talking with them, I realized how great it would be to spend time in Europe, live alone, learn how to manage problems by myself, and other things which play a big role in the process of becoming independent.
After searching different kinds of projects I found this one, which was really interesting for me, because I need experience of working in a school, and after much thought, I applied and finally I’m here.
But only after arriving here I realized what a great decision I made, how lucky I am because I have opportunity to help the students in my school, and how everything is going to change in good way during and after this project.
