#YouToo: The personal example matters

Kali is 21 years old and lives in the town of Pazardjik, Bulgaria. Three years ago she participated in a summer camp organized by Arete Youth Foundation and since then is an active volunteer. She mainly focuses on motivating young Roma to continue their education after high school. And she does that in what may seem as a very simple way – talking to them. For her the personal example is among the most important factors in this sphere. She admits that she herself needed motivation and received it through communicating with people she sees as role models. “I talk with young people and always share with them my experience and what I have been through”. Apart from that Kali joins different local and national campaigns and initiatives.

You too – come and participate!
