About Me
Hi! My name is Ana, I'm from Portugal and I'm currently in my Gap Year while applying to Medical School in the UK. I'm really excited about going to Romania to volunteer at care homes and I hope I can take as much from this experience as I can.

First Days

Posted By Ana Bettencourt on 17 Oct 2012
Szia! I have been in Romania for 3 days now and I'm absolutetly loving this here! The kids are amazing and so are the carers. We have been having a lot of fun. Today I went to the school, met the English teacher and she took me to two of her classes where I got the talk to the children and they talked to me although the only things they could say was "Hello, My name is.... What's your name? Nice to meet you". It was really fun.

Leaving for Romania

Posted By Ana Bettencourt on 13 Oct 2012
Hi there! So I'm leaving for Romania to volunteer at a Care Home for 2 weeks tomorrow. Really exited about that! My adventure actually started a couple of weeks ago when I came to the UK. I've been visiting some cities, attending university open days, taking exams and meeting up with some friends. And now I'm going to a new country, maybe learn some things about a new language, teach and have fun with the children.
