1. How would you describe yourself in five words?

I consider myself as an active, flexible, hard-working and creative person. I’m always ready to listen to others.

2. Why did you choose to do ESC individual volunteering?

I’ve chosen this project because I always dreamed with volunteering. I was in my best moment to do it because I was studying by myself public examination in Spain. At the same time, in the afternoons, I was taking care of children, teaching Spanish and helping them with their homework and exams. So at the end, I didn’t have a permanent job or anything that stopped me to follow this dream (:

3. Why did you choose Idrija as a welcoming town?

I was looking for a peaceful place, not big cities and not so crowded. At the beginning, I didn’t think in a specific country, I was just looking the projects and deciding which ones were the bests for me. Once I looked some projects, I screened by countries and villages. When I found Idrija, I fell in love and thought that it was going to be the best place for me to live because of the landscape, the weather and the opportunity to discover every village around by my own.

4. In what way are Spanish the same as Slovenians?

I didn’t expect that people here were going to be as close as in Spain, but they are! Everyone greet you at the streets and since I arrived they tried to help you even if they don’t speak English. For sure I can say that the food I’ve already tried is as good as Spanish dishes.

5. What do you think about the Idrija Youth Center?

The Youth Center has lots opportunities to be the best place where people can meet, have fun and work together.

I’ve just arrived at the youth exchange: ‘It’s on you’, so I could see everyone working and going through this project. I think they do a great and hard work.

Moreover, they have lots of ideas and activities that they’re developing right now, and some that they’re preparing in advanced for future.

6. What have you done in the past?

Last year, I finished my pathological anatomy studies. I would like to work on that, but I’ve always enjoyed working with kids so in November I started a course about monitor of free time that I finished a week before my arrival. I learnt lots of dynamics and staff related to creativity and how to be and take care of nature.

7. What do you like to do the most?

I love reading, drawing, and do sports such as athletics and of course hiking! One of my favourite hobbies is going for long walks with my dog, Dante, and spend time with my family and friends. I’ve always been a little bit shy, but here I discovered that I really enjoy meeting new people.

8. What is your first impression about Idrija?

I was awesome, it seems to me like being at a witchy place because of the rainy weather, the green landscape, and of course the ‘meglice’. ‘Meglice’ is the word that they use to describe a kind of low fog that it seems that come out from some special points of the mountains or houses at the villages. Now it is also one of my favourite words too.

I’ve arrived almost a month ago and I’m still fascinated by every time I looked through the window of my room.

 VENTANA Meglice.
