Margarita Keerd

Volunteer

I am Margarita Keerd from Estonia. I love languages, so far I know 4 and I intend to learn at least 4 more. I am fascinated with meeting people from diverse ethnical backgrounds. It is hard for me to stay in a ruitine for a long time, and in school I felt like I was sort of in a cage. For these 2 reasons I love Erasmus+ and have participated in many of their projects- it gives you a chance to broaden your horizon in an informal way, while working with people from different cultures

Irene Bouraki

Volunteer
My name is Irene Bouraki and I teach English and Greek as foreign languages to all levels. I have studied English Language and Literature and my teaching journey started in 2016. I have taught both online and offline, both in Greece and abroad. I have taken part in various seminars about teaching and I have a certification from Trinity College about Teaching English as a Second Language My great passion however is non-formal education, and I became involved in youth work in 2014, by taking part in different local and international projects and workshops about leadership, adult education, human rights, spirituality, empowerment and communication. I've also taken part in an Erasmus academic exchange in Spain and this experience made me love sharing languages and cultures even more. I believe in self-development, learning by doing, story-telling to better understand ourselves and others and also educating our minds each day by taking little steps towards our goals.

      Volunteer

      I'm vicky and I'm local resident of Serres. After finishing my studies I came back to my hometown without having something meaningful to be involved in. So I decided to join praxis as a volunteer. Why I believe I do something meaningful now? There is nothing more beautiful than offering to your society and same time improving yourself and skills and leave your impact!

As far as the pandemic allows, I hope to travel more and see the center and south of Greece, as well. I enjoy practicing Yoga, doing pottery, putting together playlists, going for hikes and running. Ultimately I want to move to Berlin, but where I will end up and what I will do in the meantime, I don’t know. I’m learning to take things as they come.

                Γεια σας! Hello! My name is Anastasios Veligradis and I came here from Germany to work as a volunteer for Praxis. It was a choice I took two years before I started because on the one hand I was impressed about the campaigns and events Praxis is organizing. On the other hand it was an opportunity for me to live abroad and to come back to my roots. Until now I am really satisfied with what I’m doing and I hope that I also can help Praxis.

                My name is Christian Losa Moreno. I'm 24 years old. I´m from Spain, one small city in Ciudad Real, called Tomelloso but I studied Law in Madrid. During my studies I was working also in different jobs. This gave me responsibility at an early age. My personality could be defined in the following way: I am an enthusiastic, sociable, creative and responsible person, who enjoys learning about the different experiences and cultures. Travelling around the world is my passion. I really like to help people, to enter in all of social media. Finally, I am looking forward to having this experience with Praxis.

                Volunteer

                Hello, my name is Felix and I am from Germany. For me the voluntary service was a chance to develop myself as much as to help people and the society to develop. Furthermore it gives me the chance to prepare myself for working life and for studies which I will start this summer after the end of the mobility period. The reason why I choose this project was because it specifically demands various of skills from us like self initiative, organizing and communicating. I am glad to be here.
