All you need is a little Faith!

Hi! I am Vyara Nikolova, one of BYF’s volunteers. I’m currently on the Canarian island La Pаlma, where I am finishing my 9-month ESC project called “Youth Winds”, which started in November 2019. Before the quarantine I worked in the local youth center where I led presentations on important topics like Erasmus +, opportunities for youth, my country of origin Bulgaria and so on. Also, I organized activities for the locals, such as a language exchange club, I actively participated in creating a community garden, I promoted opportunities in social media and I interacted with the different groups of my community, such as the elders from the local senior home and the children in the kindergarten. Because of the extraordinary circumstances, I had to transform completely my volunteering and get into a digital work mode. This didn’t challenge my work, but simply changed it. For example, I still kept interacting with the kids from the English language exchange, but instead of attending classes, we had daily art challenge with the purpose of uplifting the children and giving them a healthy and fun outlet for their energy. In April 2020, I started my blog vsichkoevuprosnavyara.com, with the purpose of spreading key firsthand information about personal development opportunities. Also, every week I lead the Facebook Live on BYF’s page called “Erasmus and you”, where I talk about my experience on La Palma and much more!
