Hello! My name is Michaela, and I come from northern Slovakia. I came to Youthfully Yours in May 2021. At that time, I was looking for a place to express myself creatively and do something good for society.
Youthfully Yours allowed me to combine my great passion for marketing and experience what it's like to volunteer. Virtually, I met a team full of wonderful people here. I learned how to create pages in WordPress or graphics in Canva. I improved my ability to meet deadlines and quickly react to unexpected situations requiring immediate solutions.
When I started in May, I had no idea how much I would use these acquired skills in my professional life. Many people feel (and I was one of them) that volunteering means packing up and going to the other side of the world for half a year. Youthfully Yours shattered my dogma. Now I know that the world is full of possibilities. Volunteering has no boundaries, and even creating a post on social networks is a service for someone who, thanks to it, will get to a fantastic project or course.
