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.
