These are unprecedented times we are living. The clock seems to have stopped, and our daily activities have undergone major changes. There is no specific recipe for coping with isolation, each of us trying to find our own way to resist, wait, or enjoy this "break" of the world. Let's see this situation through the eyes of our volunteers: which are the ups and downs, the funny and the difficult parts, and their message for the Erasmus students from everywhere.
Following each recruitment session, ESN counts the new volunteers and initiates them into what this great community and also its multiple departments really mean. Behind each new member lies a purpose, a story, a desire to achieve something. Everyone came here to play a certain role (or even many) and to discover a family made up of and for students only. Even so, the reasons for this initiative may vary from person to person, showing us how interesting unity in diversity can actually be.
It’s the beginning of summer. It’s the time when we can smell the freshness in the air, enjoy the warm long days, see the daisies bloom and we can even tell that we start feeling younger inside. But it’s not just the first day of a new season we celebrate now – it is, above all, that particular day of the year when we officially let ourserves bring out the inner child who never disappeared from our hearts. #HappyKid, #AgeIsJustANumber, #ThrowBack, we are all children on the 1st of June.
