EVS in VCS: Paulina Gołębiowska

Dreamer, music freak, owner of two dogs, bookworm…I’m Paulina, 24-year old girl from Lublin, Poland. I did my masters in journalism and social communication. I enjoy volunteering work a lot – I was part of student organization for three years where I had a chance to work on international projects. I also took part in Erasmus + projects where I got motivation to go on EVS. Besides that I was volunteering on culture festivals and football championship in my city. In my leisure time I like movie marathons, meeting with new people and collecting postcards. I enjoy discovering new places while listening to music on the headphones. I’m an enthusiast of Frida Khalo and Edward Hooper paintings.

I chose Macedonia because it’s a place not so popular among people and a bit mysterious. I’ve heard about amazing nature and hospitality of people. During the project I hope to improve my writing skills and find out if journalism is something that I’d like to continue after coming back to Poland. I expect also that I can become a more active citizen and I help young people to aim higher.
