My EVS ahead

A week ago, I finally was able to submit my visa application to the Czech embassy here in Tunis.  Now, I have to wait another two months to actually start my European Voluntary Service adventure. I have been waiting for so long to make this journey come true, I am actually writing this post to prepare a spot on my blog for this experience which I am strongly enthusiastic about.

the Evs will be for seven months instead of ten. Due to my bad learning curve preparing for my visa application and the amount of time and long queue waiting that I  had to make in the different steps at the ministries as well as at the embassy. I finally had it done. I wonder if current or ex-Evsers had to translate their diploma or bachelors and submitted them  as part for their visa application.

I am planning on documenting my Evs  a head, for which I  have enormous expectations. My Evs will take place in Usti nad labem, in Czech Republic. I will be a volunteer at the North Bohemian Research Library, where, I will undertake different activities, such as teaching English, French and Arabic and to make several presentation about Tunisia for the public there. My other activities will be to share the work of librarians there, and work at different departments of the library.

Why I want to do EVS?

 

Ever since I was introduced to European Voluntary Service I was fascinated by the idea of volunteering abroad. And, that’s why I am going to write why I want do EVS. I think that F. Scott Fitzgerald said “ I’m not sure what I’ll do, but— well, I want to go places and see people. I want my mind to grow. I want to live where things happen on a big scale.”

I believe that meeting diversity, making new connections, broadening my experience, enhancing my potential, and gaining knowledge is what I find myself inclined to do.

  • I want to travel  and meet diversity.
  • I want to learn languages and enhance my communication skills in English.
  • I want to explore my potentials through  meeting new challenges.
  • I want to learn and teach  about non-formal education
  • I want to enhance my understanding of people and explore new cultures and traditions. 
  • I want to be able to apply what I can get from an EVS in my future career 

I have been trying to apply for several EVS vacancies now and I am very much hoping that my application would be successful at least in one of them !
