Welcome Kerry!

Kerry

What other volunteering experiences do you have?

I always try to get involved with volunteering wherever I go because I think it’s a great way to get to know a place and its people. This summer I went to Ukraine to volunteer on a kids’ summer camp, which was really amazing! A few years ago I worked on an environmental project in Nicaragua with a British initiative called International Citizen Service. In London, I was doing all kinds of things, from delivering food waste on my bike to tutoring kids in English. So you can tell that I really like volunteering!

Why did you join SCI?

I joined SCI because (as I already said) I love volunteering, I think it brings people together and can be the answer to some (maybe not all) of the world’s problems. I support the principles of the organisation and this role also allows me to develop a lot of skills that I haven’t really used yet because I just finished university and I’ve never worked in an office before.

What will you do in the IS?

My main task is to support Natalie and Gośka with the preparation, organisation, logistics, and all things related to the ‘Share, Experience, Get Inspired! – Enjoy the diversity of non-formal learning tools’ seminar in October. As well as this I will help in the early stages of planning the follow-up to the Peers 2 Peace project, assisting with the proposal and helping to shape it into something real for the coming years.

Do you have any expectation for your time here?

I came with an open mind, just hoping to learn new skills, meet interesting people from around the world, understand more about SCI and experience life in Antwerp. And so far it seems that this will come true!
