EVS Volunteer in México

PRE-DEPARTURE ARTICLE

Today is the last day in Rome. Tomorrow I’ll fly to Mexico to start my EVS experience. I really don’t know how I feel and what are my expectations, I’m just afraid right now. It seems like to be in a dream until yesterday and now I can’t realize that I’m really leaving so soon. One week ago I felt good and I was very excited to be a part of this project, and now that will become a reality I feel very unprepared. If I won’t learn spanish? If I won’t able to give something good to my colleagues? If I won’t be comfortable with the situation? etc etc etc.

Rationally I know that are normal fears when you are going to live a new experience, So I breathe slowly and I try to convince myself that it will be a great experience, which probably will change me better.
