My nine months in Belgium

In Belgium, I had my most interesting time during nine months, thanks to the European Union and the Youth in Action Programme. My European Voluntary Service was an extraordinary experience, particularly instructive and rewarding, giving me the freedom of being European and of understanding the world around me.

My impression

Hello ! My name is Ana Cristina. I’m Spanish and I just have finished my EVS in Liège.

Concerning the experience I lived during my 9 months of voluntary service, it was generally very good and positive, because it allowed me to live a lot of new things and to advance more as a person.

During my EVS, I worked in an association named “Santé Nord Sud” (Health in North and South). In that organization, there are so much activities of which the objective is the creation of a multicultural and tolerant society. In fact, some activities are the following ones:

Huisheng and Luyao: the impressions of some participants for the project for cooperation between VIEWS and China

I'm really pleased to have been chosen to participate in this program. Indeed, it was my first experience abroad . Through this exchange, I was able to travel to the heart of Europe , the continent that I love the most. I was immediately able to discover the life of the people who live here, their education, their conditions of work, minimum wage and Social Security, etc. , all of which is very different from what we know in China.
