Meet Manon, Our New EVS Volunteer

by Sam Easterbrook | 9th Oct 2017

Meet ProMo-Cymru’s newest edition to the team, Manon, our new EVS Volunteer from France.

Manon - new EVS volunteer at ProMo-Cymru

Hello, I’m Manon and I’m a young French EVS volunteer here in Cardiff.

I will be working for 11 months at ProMo-Cymru. I’m 22 and I’ve just finished my degree in the field of communication. And before I start my masters in political communication, I wanted to take a year out for me to learn English. I confirm the legend about French people, I’m really not good at speaking English.

Also I wanted to discover another country and culture, and I think I have made the right choice by coming to Wales! This country reminds me of my region in Brittany! And that is a very nice compliment!

What are my first impressions of the city since my arrival? I think Cardiff is an attractive city, it has a beautiful bay, very nice people, and so many events I think I will not get bored!

The only negative point is the weather… it is cold and wet! It is worse than Brittany! But I’m sure I’ll get used to it.

Finally, I’m really happy to be here, because I feel good working with a nice team, in a really interesting organisation with engaging projects, in a dynamic town. All I need for a good year!

And as we can say in French – A bientôt!
