After five years of university, what can one do, if he can't find a job he'd like to do? - asked myself. During my student years in Kolozsvár, I took time to visit home, and attend differenct events of the Gree Sun Association. I tried to stay faithful to the organization throughout the time I was out of the town. This created a fruitful result, because in the end of 2018 I received an opportunity to attend more than 6 months volunteering project, in the coolest charity shop of Budapest, called Filantrópia. My stay there started in February, 2019 and lasted for seven months.
