Summarise your EVS:
I’d never thought about EVS. I knew that something like that exist, but I didn’t think about it as an opportunity during this summer.
I learnt here so many lectures. Every experience contribute to my personality. In my country, it’s really hard to find a job without experience. This EVS allowed me to gain experience during summer camps, where I had to prepare various activities for kids, for example interesting country presentation, energizes or dances. Then, I prepared my own workshop about musical theatre, during which I had opportunity to work with youngsters and adults, make a poster, describe my idea and organise it.
Living with other people for a longer time was also something new for me. But whole project is about people and I was lucky that I was surrounded by amazing people from different countries and with different habits.
But EVS is not only about responsibilities. It’s also about meeting new people, travelling – we travelled to Gdansk and Berlin, collecting memories for example during Woodstock and find yourself in different situations that can totally change your view.
I’m so glad that I had a chance to be a part of CAT Foundation and I’m thankful to all volunteers and members of CAT Foundation.
Name : Viktória Zbojánová
Age : 18
Studies Field : grammar school – it´s general education.
What Do You Like Most In Your Life? :
It´s hard to choose just a one thing… For example sun-rise, long walks (I don´t like cars, so I prefer to go by foot), broccoli and cheese, coffee and feeling that I can do everything that I want.
Why Did You Choose EVS? :
I was a participant on 1 youth exchange and 3 trainings, but all of these experiences were just sitting, listening and learning… Of course we had non-formal educational methods, but we didn´t do something for real. I think that during this EVS, I can do things and I can help to some people.
What Are Your Expectations? :
I expect to learn how to create my own workshop/activity, to find new friends from different countries, to learn more about other cultures/countries, to improve my English. I want to have experience with working with kids and intercultural environment. I want to explore more places in Poland and also outside it.
What do you hope to share with other people during your stay in Poland ?
I would like to share my knowledge and skills with musical theatre – acting, singing, playing on a piano and guitar and a little bit of dancing, cooking skills – also something about vegetarianism and healthy feeding, after acclimatization – my positive energy, I´m interested in Cambridge Certificate of English, so if someone wants to do that I can help with materials or some tips and of course I can share my experience and knowledge from other volunteering activities and Erasmus+ projects.
What would be your best attributes?
A lot of people talk about me as a kind, friendly and positive person. I´m also perfectionist, flexible, responsible, patient and optimistic person.
