Maëlle : What was your first impression of the city?
Dicle : It was so quiet and silent, i’m used to see smiling people all the time in my city, but here people looked so depressed.. and I don’t know..there is distance between them. But everything is in order, clean, and it’s good but it would be better if I would see the people more happy, cheerful!M : Are you afraid of the weather?

Name : Dicle Kaya Age: 22
Studies Field : English Language Teaching, Education
What Do You Like Most :I love travelling and being on the road, meeting with people from different backgrounds and stories. Also I love camping, being in the heart of the mother nature, feeling pure freedom. Moreover, I like helping people to discover their capabilities and to broaden their horizon. That’s why I chose my study field as language teaching.
Why Did You Choose EVS? :
Because I think EVS gives me the oppurtunity to live in a different culture and observe the diversified point of views and behaviours. My ambition of non-stop learning, improving myself, enriching cognition and culture helped me to decide to do EVS. Also, I love voluntary actions and I thought that I can contribute with my ideas and work.
What Are Your Expectations? :
I expect to absorb different cultures and languages in all perspectives, experience the Polish life style. In addition to these, my expectations are to make lifelongfrienships and strenghten the sense of voluntariness through activities.
What do you hope to share with other people during your stay in Poland ?
I hope to share my creative drama knowledge because I believe that it can be beneficial in developing and creating performances especially with the children and making the atmosphere more sincere and funny. I would like to share some basic parts of the Turkish traditions and culture through cooking, dancing and acting. Also I hope to share my passion for travelling and backpacking.
What would be your best attributes?
As my best attributes, I can say that I am very open-minded and compatible. I can easily adapt to different places and people. I believe that I have the power to inspire people to realize their own competences. Actually, this is the first reason why I am a teacher. As Gandhi says “Be the change you want to see in the world.” I have the sufficient energy to make people believe that they can do anything. Besides, I am a very creative and responsible person, I have the knowledge for how to make my lessons and activites, projects more productive and interesting.
