Chapter 3: Good bye-time.

 

Hej hej ! It’s been one month since I’m here now, and I can’t believe it’s already goodbye time. Time went so fast. So I’m wrinting now the last chapter about my experience as a volunteer!

This experience in Sweden was really inspiring for me. The work I did allowed me to learn new things (coloring drawings by computer, making flyers and posters, writing articles and recipes in English…) and also to reuse the abilities I get from my former volunteering and my hobbies (animating a workshop, eco-friendly knowledge, drawing). It was really rewarding and playful.

The main outcome of my work here was the Saturday’s Earth week’s events. I exhibited posters I made about alternative and eco-friendly association and project all around the world (well, not exactly all around the world because I mainly made posters about French associations and organizations, as they are the ones I know the most). I animated two workshops, the Thrashes to Treasures with objects made from trashes (ashtray, food boxes, candlesticks, decorations…) and the Homemade products with eco-friendly recipes. People were really interested, implicating and helpful so it was enjoyable.

I really enjoyed meet new people and work with them, organize different projects and events. The only thing I can advise you if you would like to have an experience abroad as a volunteer is to go for a long time. I’m so frustrated to leave now that I have met so nice persons and that I would like to learn more about them.

Anyway I could have a nice goodbye party at Kafé Deluxe as well as a movie night during the last week-end and a sunny afternoon in Vaxjö on Tuesday to enjoy hanging out with people I met at work, and I went to an exploration day around the Åsnen lake with my social mentor to enjoy beautiful landscapes. I just can advise you to live that experience as well, going abroad is just about having fun, building great things, learning to manage in unexpected situations, discovering and meeting people. I wish everybody can live that king of trip. This experience gave me self-confidence and desire to animate workshop in France about upcylcling and homemade products. It inspired and enriched my personal projects.

I wish the best to every people I met during my volunteering ! Take care of you guys and if the things go bad just have Fika.

Thank you again !
