I’m Gabriella, I am 29 years old, and I come from Rome ‘Caput Mundi’ – one of those places you can love or hate but don’t leave you indifferent – where there is so much culture, well, but I wanted to test myself in a different environment and, why not, trying to know myself better in order to grow up and trying to become a more aware person.
I have a humanistic education and my passions concern art, music, literature, photography, ecology, travel and I can say that I like to approach things intuitively… I’m looking for things I cannot see right away, I like to discover them step by step and this – I think – is exactly the feeling you get entering into the EVS project, in a different way; starting something new in another country and sharing the perspectives with participants from other places and new ways of thinking.
Above all, I believe in a mobility with the aim of training, experiencing other cultures or artistic practices. And Slovenia – a country with a complicated history and a new emerging economy, with a great wealth landscape – seemed to me a good place to experience all of this.
My EVS project will last six months and in this period I hope to learn many new things. I would like to learn how to make a project of social inclusion, for example, or to increase knowledge on multiculturalism; also I would like to improve digital skills, speak English fluently and learn about the Slovenian culture (and a little bit of the Slovenian language, too!).
I’ve chosen PiNA because I care the issues promoted by the organisation – like human rights, culture, active citizenship, women empowerment, sustainable development, respect for the environment – and concerned in the framework of the non-formal education, with a holistic approach, perhaps thanks to multimedia tools. It’s an interesting way to interact with stakeholders.
Moreover, I believe in the synergy and in a dialogue between the various local, national and international development from different backgrounds.
