This year was the first Romanian edition of the Volunteers' Gala, on December 12th, organized by VOLUM, a federation comprising the organisations which promote volunteering. I was nomineed by Save the Children to the Youth category, and I won! :D Although it crossed my mind for some moments the fact that I could win, it seems incredible to me even now. I would like to thank everybody from Save the Children, so inspiring people, awesome friends and a great team who's always so involved in every project and action! Special congrats to Ioana and Ina, who also won that night to their category!
I've been volunteering for already three years, and it's been the most amazing thing I could experiment as a teenager. Working with and for kids allowed me to grow so much as a person, and be able to do things I never dared to do before.
I encourage all of you to volunteer, make a change in your society, and bring people a smile on their face. Cheers to all the volunteers!!!
