Afraa, Optometry in Jeruzalem 

I still volunteer with little children. I enjoy very much making a mess as you see on this picture.

As you all know I started working from the third year, beside to my studying and volunteering, now that I am fourth year, I feel myself ready to finish my study and start my life. I learned how to act under pressure, how to do more than one task, how to deal with people of a lot of kinds, old people, children, babies. And most important how-to successes while doing all of these things.

This volunteering taught me that when you really give even if it was a little you feel satisfied with yourself, and that will reflect on your life. You learn that it is okay to give from your time for society, and the evidence that this volunteering is not affecting my studying and my work. The opposite it's helping me to build my character and to use my free time with useful things.
