Hi! I’m Laura, (24) I came from Lithuania, one of the Baltic states, a small and beautiful country in eastern Europe. Volunteering became a big part of my life when I started my psychology studies in Vilnius. Since then I volunteered in local organizations like day center for people with mental disabilities or day center for homeless people and on some occasion I joined the volunteers for book fairs and music festivals. So the EVS was the next step forward for me. I’m an active, friendly and curious person, so I thought to myself, ‘’Why not?’’. I wanted to go to another country, to truly live there, meet locals, to experience things that you won’t find in tourist’s guide, I wanted to feel it with my whole soul. EVS was perfect for that and here I am.
