administrative assistant (2018)
I am Elin, I’m 23 years old and I come from Wales in the UK. I am working in the office managing the VIEWS International social media accounts, website and newsletter from October 2017 until July 2018.
I applied to the EVS project because I have always wanted to travel and to experience as much of the world as possible, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
I am accompanied in Belgium by my guide dog Jazzy, a 5 year old black labrador/retriever who I have had for over 3 years.
In my spare time I love to listen to audio books, go to live performances of music, comedy or theatre and of course I love to travel.
Elin Williams (EVS 2017-2018)
Tamara Scharping, Manager Assistant (October 2016 - February 2018)
Hello, my name is Tamara and I’m an administrative assistant for Views International. I’m from the German-speaking part of Belgium but now I live in Liège. After my two Bachelor degrees (Communication and Specialized Education) and different kind of jobs (mostly in the social domain), I worked as a social worker for an organisation that helps people with visual impairment. My task consisted in encouraging visually impaired people to acquire or regain their autonomy, for example by giving mobility and daily living skills classes. That’s why I’m particularly happy to get the chance to continue working in the same field. Being able to work for an international organization that manages mobility programmes, and with European volunteers besides, is the cherry on the cake for me!
In fact, in 2011 I worked for a few months as an EVS volunteer in a youth centre in Sweden (the town was called Örnsköldsvik – just try to say that!). Afterwards, I worked as a co-ordinator of mobility projects for young people (EVS- and Bel’J), being in charge of the administrative aspects of Belgian and European exchanges. I believe that working for Views International is a great opportunity to combine these life and work experiences and to take up a new challenge.
In my spare time I love reading, travelling and cooking international food.
Hello, everybody! My name is Clara, I am 29 years old, and I come from the eternal city of Rome, Italy. I’ve always had the annoying tendency to study too much: after BA and MA in Modern Languages and Translation, I did another MA in Conference Interpretation. I’ve always had a passion for languages, and at university I studied Dutch, English and Spanish. However, there was one language that I’d never had the time/chance to learn, though I find it extremely beautiful: le français! As a conference interpreter, it’s almost blasphemous to not speak French, especially if you aspire to work at the European institutions, like myself. That’s one of the reasons why I’m here in Liège right now. To improve my French. But not the only one.
I’ve been blind since birth, and I’ve always loved to be involved in blind-related things. To help other blind people with technology or other things I was good at. In particular, I’ve always loved to encourage blind people to get out of their shells, to dare a bit more and be out there, trying new things and living to the fullest. That’s why I’ve always loved to participate in summer camps for blind people, especially the international ones, where I could exchange ideas with other blind people and share with them things I had already discovered on my own.
All this being said, you can imagine how thrilled and excited I am to do my EVS for six months at Views I
Clara Ori (EVS 2016-2017)

Till 2013 I have taken part in EVS program as monitor. I’m the daily living skill’s monitor for this group of volunteers.
In my spare time I love going to cinema, sightseeing and of course traveling.

My name is Max Grote, I’m 18 years old, I come from Germany and I’m the current EVS volunteer.
I’m working in our executive office where I help with the preparation of various projects for young people. I’m also responsible for updating our homepage as well as writing and translating texts. All of these activities are part of my European Voluntary Service project, which takes nine months.
Hearing about the European Voluntary Service and especially of this project, I was directly fascinated by the thought of having the possibility to work for VIEWS INTERNATIONAL in Belgium and to work with the young people in Belgium, as well as doing international projects.
I’m very motivated for my project in VIEWS and I’m looking forward to unique experiences and great meetings.
