Hi, my name is Ema, I come from beautiful Košice and this is my "why?"


I've always been a big believer in the idea that we, as humans, create ourselves, that we are a mosaic of our experiences, the people we surround ourselves with, and most importantly, what we do. The older I get, the more I realize how what we do loses weight if we do it just for ourselves. I always knew I wanted to do more, more for myself and more for my community, so I always liked to get involved in different volunteering activities and, for instance, became a European Solidarity Corps volunteer. But trying to find a balance between giving time to yourself and giving time to others is often challenging, especially in today's fast-paced world. Therefore, I appreciate all the more that YY SK offers me the opportunity to benefit both sides simultaneously. 

I believe that we, young people, are the future, and, especially because of this, the vision of our organization appealed to me. I am convinced that almost every young person wishes to be educated and informed and to have opportunities to develop themselves and their competencies, locally or internationally. The need to help these young people achieve everything they want and much more is part of each of my colleagues, which is why it is extremely inspiring for me to work in such a team of people.   

  I believe that big changes start small, and I believe that if we want it badly enough, each and every one of us can be the change we want to see in the world.
