My name is Masha, I am 24 years old. I graduated from the Technical University with a degree in design and printing technologies. Currently I work as an Illustrator of children’s books, and also develop layouts for various products. My Hobbies are creating handmade greeting cards and singing in the choir. Another favorite activity for me is volunteering. While still at school, I started participating in various volunteer actions, mostly related to ecology. A year ago I learned about the volunteer center and connected to the participation in various projects. I decided to start volunteering again, because I truly believe that it can change many things for the better, both in our country and in the world as a whole. At a certain point, volunteering became a way of life for me, an activity that brings a lot of positive emotions to my life. The most valuable and pleasant thing for me about volunteering is the smiles on people’s faces, gratitude for their attention, and the many stories they tell us. Most of all, I remember the Day of Good Deeds 2016, which was the beginning of my volunteer work in the RVC team. I felt myself involved in an important and significant event, I felt surrounded by an atmosphere of friendship and kindness.
I would advise people who are just going to start volunteering as soon as possible! Put aside your fears, doubts, and excuses and just take this step. Volunteering guarantees an indescribable experience. It can change not only the lives of others, but also your own!
