Name: Olga
Last Name: Belova
Age: 25
Country: Russia
Hosting Organization: ETL Don Bosco
Something about my country: Don't believe in stereotypes, Russia is much more than cold winters and mysterious Russian soul! In fact there are more than 160 nationalities with their own cultures and languages and you just can't stop exploring all this beautiful diversity.
Why am I here in Santiago? EVS project is a personal challenge and a chance to open myself. I am here to inspire people and to get a reflection.

Last Name: Garzaro
Age: 19
Country: Luxembourg
Hosting Organization: ETL Don Bosco
Something about my country: Luxembourg may be one of the smallest countries of Europe, but also one with the most cultural diversity.
Why am I here in Santiago? I see EVS as an opportunity that we have. In my opinion everybody should consider doing at least 6 months of volunteering.

Last Name: Caymaz

Something about my country: Turks are the most hospitable people in the world, extremely respectful, friendly and sincere to foreigners.
Why am I here in Santiago? First time one year ago when I visited Santiago, I thought that galician people are super nice and friendly, I felt that I was in my hometown. So I decided to come here again to have more experience about Galicia!

Name: Oleksandra
Last Name: Stupakovska
Age: 27
Country: Ukraine
Hosting Organization: CSC Santa Marta
Something about my country: To understand Ukraine you should come to Ukraine :) We have a lot of interesting things to show. And also Ukraine is really cheap country. So it is a good place to visit.
Why am I here in Santiago? Volunteering is a good chance to share my experience with others and to have some new knowledge for my future projects.

Name: Kristína
Last Name: Petrová
Age: 19
Country: Slovakia
Hosting Organization: CSC Fontiñas
Something about my country: Slovakia, even though it is not one of the big countries in Europe, has many things to offer: beautiful nature and landscape, really strong folk traditions and delicious food! 
Why am I here in Santiago? This project is a challenge for me, the possibility to grow personally and especially to get to know new country and language.


Name: Sahar
Last Name: Shatat
Age: 22
Country: Jordan
Hosting Organization: CSC José Saramago/Vite
Something about my country:  Maybe the first thing people remember about Jordan is Petra, but I have to say that It has many more things to see and places to visit. People in Jordan are so welcoming and they try to make visitors feel like they’re in their home.
Why am I here in Santiago? When I decided to do my EVS I chose to do it in Santiago to discover it more, to learn Galician language, to learn as much as I can about Galicia’s history, culture and people so I found volunteering in Social-cultural center a great way to achieve this goal.
