Hey everyone! My name’s Kikioi Alina and I’m a volunteer from RVC!
I’ve become a volunteer due to my classmate. Once he offered me to come with him to the project because his partner couldn’t come, that’s why I’ve agreed. Sincerely, I had no idea even where I was going and why. Only when we started our way I’ve found out that I take part in «School of Repair» project and I should help Vova to fix some stuff. This is how my volunteer story has begun…
I liked to communicate with older people so the next day I’ve come to RVC and registered as a volunteer.
The elderly lady, who we had visited with Vova encouraged me to take this step. She was so happy when we arrived, it was so pleasant to talk with her and the most important thing – we wanted to help her. That was the moment when I felt that I’m needed.
In RVC I like the most that we, who are a young team, have an opportunity to make our ideas real. Also I appreciate the Center’s support, especially the coordinators’ one, who are always ready to help us.
About motivation – everything is simple – I don’t need it! I don’t need a special thought which is going to help me moving forward. I’ve become a volunteer consciously and I dedicate myself to this activity with great pleasure.
In general, I work with children, that is why I take part in projects «New Life of an Item», «School of Life», «Birthday child» and in a new one «Eco-friendly kids edition».
I don’t have a favourite project, because all of them are amazing, but the closest one for me is «New Life of an Item» because it was the first my project, it gave me my first volunteer experience and helped me to meet new people.
The greatest event was Summer School Be.Do.Have. I registered at RVC right after the Summer School had ended, so I had been waiting for a year to go there. When it has finally happened was the happiest person! Be.Do.Have gave me a lot of new knowledge and experience, new friends and pleasant memories.
