Check this amazing receipe from one of our ESC volunteers at OCC Barcelona! Learn how to make a traditional Arabic sweet.
My name is Mimi, I am 19 years old and I am from England. I am volunteering at OCC Barcelona as part of my European Solidarity Corps project for nine months. My main role is as the English teacher in which I teach locals at a beginner and intermediate level and also to refugee minors.
“Some of my favorite memories when I started my new life were the lessons, learning new languages and doing things I love such as my favorite sport which is swimming. Completing my project with OCC was also a dream come true. Last but not least, one of my favorite moments was meeting with my family.”
“My full-time project is teaching Farsi. But I also had some other tasks like going to schools to inform them about the situation of refugees, and other times prepare food for intercultural events hosted by OCC.”
“Actually I could not finish my High School because it was not safe especially for girl or woman(in Afghanistan)” said. She has been in New Cavala’s camp as a volunteer helping some other organisations. “That way made me more patient of knowing about different cultures. I like to travel, listen to music, and dance.”
