"It's like being a kid again, learning everything from scratch" - The first weeks of Mateusz in Trento Blog dei volontari

Hi! I'm Mateusz! I'm from Poland and right now I'm volunteering at InCo in Trento, which is in the northern part of Italy. It's been about two weeks since I started and I already feel like it's time well spent.

At InCo I help with social media. I also have this little project called "Movie of the Week". Every Wednesday you can see my favourite films on InCo's Instagram and Facebook page.But that's not all! I also help out with events and projects. It's really helped me get better at organising things, and it feels good to know that I'm making a positive difference in the community. Volunteering has allowed me to meet great people from all over the world. Talking to people from different backgrounds has opened up my world and given me a new perspective on other cultures.Moving to a new country or city is always an adventure. It's like being a kid again, learning everything from scratch. Finding the best places to shop, figuring out which bus to take or discovering hidden spots for a great dinner - every day is a new adventure. This experience has not only made me more independent, but also more curious and open to new things.When I think about the journey so far, I'm excited about what's next. My time as a volunteer in Trento is just beginning and I can't wait to see where it goes. I hope it continues to be as fulfilling and positive as it is now. Every day is a chance to experience new cultures and learn new things.Mateusz
