My name is Maria. I am 24 years old. I graduated from the Technical University of Moldova and got a degree in graphic design and printing technology. Now, I work as a children’s books graphic designer, I also design various products layout. My hobby is making cards. Besides, I sing in a choir. My other passion is volunteering. My first experience as a volunteer was at school when I took part in various volunteer activities in the field of environmental protection.

A year ago, I found out about the Republican Volunteer Center and got involved in a number of projects. I decided to volunteer because I believe that in such a way I can make a difference in the world, both at the local level and globally.

Volunteering has become my lifestyle, it gives me positive emotions, brings joy and happiness in my life.

Happy smiles on the faces of our beneficiaries, their heartfelt gratitude and the stories they tell are the biggest reward I get. All this is very valuable to me.

One of my best memories is related to the Good Deeds Day 2016 when I got involved in volunteer activities carried out by the Republican Volunteer Center team. I felt being part of a very important and significant event, I felt myself surrounded by amazing people, in nice environment.

To those who are still hesitating over whether or not to start volunteering, I would advise to start as soon as possible! Brush your fears, doubts and excuses away, just make the first step and go ahead. You will gain unforgettable experience! You will make a difference in someone’s life, and volunteering will completely change your own life!

Eremina Margarita, I am 26 years old. I study in college of art and culture on theatrical creativity, and I also participate in the youth Jewish theater.
I have got to the volunteer center because I attended the youth Jewish club, and I have learned about such remarkable programs.
Why am I engaged in the volunteering? Why is it actual today? To bear to people good things is the same as the most valuable gift; people became more mercantile nowadays, and now even the smile on their faces is a rarity, to see a smile on their face is a great happiness for me and pride there are the same adherents with me as I am. The time which is spent for the volunteer actions, I consider the most wonderful and the most remarkable because at this time we give the happiness to people.
