Hello, I’m Martin and I’m making my EVS in a Hort called the Bunte Welt in Halle Neustadt. Just to let you know a bit about myself: I come from Newcastle, a city in the North East of England. I am interested in a wide range of things including more general things such as playing/watching sports (I’m a big Newcastle United fan), films, meeting with friends, pub quizzes etc. but also more novel things such as researching my family tree, keeping up to date with news and current affairs and discussing political issues.

A big reason on coming to volunteer in Halle was because I enjoy working with children. But I also saw this year as a time to grow personally as this is the first time that I have lived away from home, and additionally to learn a language but didn’t get the chance to take them on after GCSEs. So this year has also been a really good opportunity to do so as well as learn more about another culture.

Interview Day - Was I successful ?

Mittwoch, 11. Mai 2016, of Freiwillige(r): Martin Osborne
I was supported by the Red Cross EVS coordinator who had really helped me in finding accommodation for the night before the interview and in booking my train tickets and also informed me a little more about what to expect on the day. So after swatting up on the Red Cross and the EVS I was ready!
