When you start creating a new life, new friendships, new relationships and you think that this can’t get better, you will see yourself leaving everything behind and returning back to your old life. I know that this sounds terrible and for some people it’s a nightmare but this is EVS baby!
Visiting Rome, Venice, Sardinia doesn’t sound like a nightmare at all, I would rather say paradise. Living one year in Turin and meeting people from different backgrounds was a treasure that I wouldn’t change with many things. Working in Il Passo Social Point and creating a family was a blessing that I always will hold in the shelf of best memories. Having the opportunity to be the first and the only volunteer from Kosovo for Diakonia Valdese Italy, I would call it a unique experience and something special that will open many doors to other Kosovo volunteers. Loosing and Finding myself in the ways that I never imagined that I would find was the cherry on top.
During this whole one-year period I had time to reflect in many ways and reconstruct a lot of things in different dimensions. Seeing and meeting a lot of teenagers and youngsters from EU countries, I became more aware of the possibilities that they have and in other side this fact made me reflect even more about Kosovo teenagers & youngsters and the lack of opportunities that they have, despite being one of the most ambitious youth that I ever meet. So I started thinking how can I give the youth of my country more chances to express themself and their talent in Europe. Since EVS is not very famous in Kosovo, organizing information campaing’s for EVS around Kosovo was my first idea that came in my mind. So the youth of my country can get out there, give their best like I did and explore Europe without thinking about VISA. The first stop will be city of Mitrovica where thanks to the help of Youth Center Diakonia Kosova we will organize first informative campaing about EVS. So anyone from Kosovo who is reading this post is welcomed to join us in Mitrovica.
Meanwhile in the beginning of September I’ve got an offer from Giovani Nel Mondo Association to be Ambassador of Rome International Careers Festival 2020, which I accepted with all my pleasure. The Festival is composed of four main projects (Business Game, Press Game, United Nations Model, Careers Course) which participants can apply to, base on their academic background, professional aspirations or general interest.
The Festival has an area which is entirely open to the public: The International Careers Fair. The Fair is a large exhibition area open to both participants and the public alike. It will be divided into two different sections: the education/university area and the work/internship area. It favours the interaction between thousands of students, whether they are looking for study/training/internship/work opportunities, and industry experts. There are a limited number of places for all four projects. In order to participate, you must complete the application form and pass the selection process. The APPLICATION and REGISTRATION of aspiring participants must be completed and submitted by the 20th of December 2019. The Festival is a good way for youngsters to find many job opportunities, get in contact with many university’s and meet people from all around the World. I would suggest everyone who loves an international career to apply.

At the end of this whole experience I understood that in the road of embroidering your own wings, you can embroider and color hundred other wings, and give them to people who never had a pair.
