Hola! My name is Maria. I’m from the city where the sun never sleeps, Almería in the South of Spain. I studied economics and last year at this time I was working as a bank teller and I was collaborating with the Events and Culture Association in my local community organising cultural and sport events for people in my hometown.

During covid lockdowns I realised that I needed a change in my life, to live an international experience, learn about new cultures and get out of my comfort zone. When I started to search and read about volunteering projects it seemed to be a great opportunity to provide a positive impact in the community.

My work in this project has overcome all the expectations that I had, I’m so glad to work in the school and support the students. Being a volunteer is one of the best decision I took but for sure the best is yet to come!
