Teresa’s work experience

By Teresa Morandini 

 

My experience at the WCIA has come to an end.

Since November, I have been volunteering with an amazing working group, always ready to help me in any possible way. ​It has been such a lovely time, in which I have learnt a lot. ​

Firstly, I had the chance to challenge myself by working in a different language. But, without doubt, I have to thanks all WCIA staff to have been patient with me and spent time to correct my work. ​

However, I have much more to be thankful.

As a matter of fact, these months were an opportunity, a job experience as well as a personal adventure. ​

Taking part to the numerous WCIA events made me realise the similarity with the Italian way to promote human rights. It was a surprisingly discovery, which led me to a new perspective on charity and campaigning. ​

Usually, we have the impression that human rights are too abstract. And, for certain extends, this is true. But, finding this correlation have broadened my horizon. ​

Why? Because I finally understood the language of Human Rights, made of universalism: the words for fighting the inequality, injustices and promoting global learning are the same in any languages: English, Welsh or Italian. ​

By keeping in mind this precious thought, I am leaving the WCIA to continue my studies in Brussels although I hope my future will reserve me more Wales further down in the line. ​

Diolch!​
