About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring the world

ABOUT ME

Salut tout le monde!
My name is Valentina and I'm 24 years old.
I finished my A-levels in Germany in summer 2011 and worked for 11 months as an EVS (European Voluntary Service)-volunteer in Viry-Chatillon/France.
I started my Bachelor's degree in "European Social and Political Studies" in Paris/London in September 2012 and graduated this year.

I am open-minded and as I love exploring other cultures, traditions and languages, I am looking forward to travelling a lot and to establishling ties with new friends around the world!

PHILOSOPHY

"Vivre, c'est agir!" (Albert Camus)

"Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne connaît pas."

"Life is not what you expect. It's what you don't expect that makes life worth living."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I took part in a student exchange with the Israeli town Rishon-LeZion, and both people and country are amazing! We went swimming in the Dead Sea, visited holy places and even learned a bit of Hebrew. This is definitely an experience that I will never forget and I can do nothing but to recommend a detour to Israel!

Teach, Learn, Share

It is impossible not to get lost in a French hypermarché and in the Parisian metro system.
