Welcome, Aleksandra – our new volunteer from Poland!

Hi! My name is Aleksandra, but everyone calls me Ola. I’m 19 years old and I come from Kosakowo, Poland. I graduated from a tourism technical high school and I wanted to take a gap year because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go to university. I enjoy traveling a lot, so I thought about volunteering somewhere. I found out about VCS, and I really liked their activities. I got positive vibes from them plus I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to develop. That’s why I decided to try to join them. 

My interests are books, especially about self-development. I like to do activities such as swimming and hiking. I’m curious about the world, so being in a completely new place is exciting for me. I’m sure I will enjoy Macedonia very much! I’m interested in Asian culture and I’m a big fan of their food, it’s so tasty. My other hobbies are watching movies, listening to music, playing video games and meditating.

I believe that the time I spend at VCS will be a memorable one. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and learning from them. I want to be a part of this amazing community and spread positivity everywhere I go!
