Khatia Martiashvili is a Georgian volunteer who joined Polska Fundacja im. Roberta Schumana (PFRS), in Poland and carries out her long-term European Solidarity Corps project funded by Erasmus +. Read what she says about her upcoming experience:
”I finished Bachelor’s degree in Political science last year and now I’m studying Master’s in Public Relations (PR) and Marketing, but I decided to take a gap year, to move to another country for some months and to do something new and exciting (I mean volunteering) in my life, because I’m that kind of person who always look for new adventures. During my studies at university, I participated in Erasmus+ Youth exchange projects where I met a lot of interesting people, made new friends who became my inspiration to move in another country and to meet new life experiences.
Thinking about volunteering only positive things come to my mind, such as doing something good for people that you have never met before and not waiting anything back from them, developing new skills, traveling, meeting new people and discovering their culture.
Volunteering in another country, it’s an opposite world of what you can find in your daily routine. It’s something that you must discover and live.
Except this, I also have my personal expectations. I think volunteering in The Polish Robert Schuman Foundation will help me to improve my professional skills, it will open the door of new life experiences and will help me to be more independent. I hope my life in Poland as a volunteer will be full of happy and exciting moments, and when I come back I will be able to say I’ve done something important in my life” – Khatia Martiashvili
