Prior to my arrival to Romania, I had no direct expectations of what I would come to meet. As I love children, it came natural to me to work as a volunteer in the orphanage Casa Kiwi. I was welcomed there by everyone with open arms. The children were as curious and eager to meet me as I was to meet them.Our meetings along the weeks I met them were planned in consultation with the children’s wishes.
Romania will forever keep a place in my heart. I went there with a desire to help but I was helped myself. I was taught that hospitality and curiosity can broaden perspectives. I now understand that all people possess knowledge and skills that are useful for those of us that wish to take the global community forward towards a brighter future.
