Hello everybody! I´m Martina from Slovakia, I´m in the third year of my studies, finishing my Bachelor degree. I perceive EVS like an opportunity to find out and decide what to do in my life later on.

When I had been searching for my EVS, I knew I wanted to work in NGO, in an international environment, try something new and explore Balkan countries as well. Working in CID offers me wide area where I can realise myself. Currently, I support the work of sending department, and provide young people in Kumanovo with information about educational opportunities in Europe. Later, I will run a workshop in the local youth center. I like that I can implement my knowledge, improve and learn as well.
Whole CID team is a group of wonderful people. I like them a lot. They are very open-minded and doing awesome job. People out of the organization are also nice. Not everybody speaks English, but this will be a good for me to practice the local language.

I´m sure, I will have a great time here!
