"Get to know Jmia!"

In today’s article we are pleased to introduce you Jmia, a brilliant student of Economic and Development from Rome, a 24 young woman strongly focused on the field of volunteer working and social support towards the less fortunate members of the society..

Despite the strong and predominant social-wise aspect of her personality, she demonstrated also as a very self-reflective person, describing us her long walk with friends or in solitude, or simply spending time practicing with her guitar. Jmia is in fact, very fond of art, with a peculiar attraction towards music which is an art by her at best practiced, in connection with the possibility she had to travel all around the globe, to discover, learn and get amazed by the variety our society and nature offer. Nevertheless, the attraction she always felt towards not only art but also challenges, concerned the unknown held her hand during her life’s path with the future wish to found a Non Governative Organization herself.

Her competences in the field of Economics added to the strong skills acquired during her long-lasting experience in the volunteering field, will surely enable her to achieve the virtuous aim set. Furthermore, the multiple experience gained during her voyages, bring a fundamental support both to System and Generation and to her own future, in terms of responsibility-taking and solution orientation.
With such a strong and versatile personality we will not expect anything but a great synergy with S&G’s staff and working fields, looking forward to witnessing fruitful results and gratifications.

You may wonder which were the reasons that led her towards such an impactful cross-cultural experience: the desire of being a game changer (regardless of the already existing volunteering work in Rome), but also acting on a non- European ground, managing to find her stray here in Turkey. Whether there are any other significant reasons which pushed her to step up in System & Generations, we could surely identify them exactly in the attraction led by the number of activities, differentiating themselves consistently from other NGOs which had nothing concrete to offer instead.Moreover, with regard to S&G , our beloved collaborator shared with us how she managed to find the facebook page of our NGO, which allows us to reach every kind of target group, included the youngest member of our society.
Her path with the Organization has just started, wishing to gather more knowledge about EU countries, hoping to improve her skills concerning project management and writing, thanks to the chance given to be part of this amazing organization. With the support of the organization’s staff we wish but are sure about the enriching and fruitful experience which will be witnessed both by our volunteers and by the system itself.

   volunteering and social working.

"Get to know Kiril!"

At the dawn of September, the Non Governative Association (NGO) named System and Generation, welcomed Kiril one of the many enterprising young people who decided to take a step towards an unknown but indeed challenging future.

At the age of 24, Kiril already deepened his knowledge within the field of psychology, accompanying his studies with the wish to become a therapist, in any Country which is settled away from Macedonia, where his roots belong. His disruptive will to know and gain experiences within different perspectives brought him to Ankara, where he will spend two months engaging with System and Generation in a fruitful and enriching collaboration for both sides.

Nor should you think sacrifices were not made: despite his already considerable and heterogeneous cultural background , given by the many possibilities he had to spend time in a big variety of Countries, he decided to delay the successful ending of his MMA in order to join this project, regardless of the upcoming efforts which would be needed.

Moreover, you may be  wondering if there are any other significant reasons which pushed him to step up and join this venture:  we will leave you with a bit of suspense in the wish you will be intrigued at the point to ask Kiril himself to reveal them. We won’t leave you without any hints though, suggesting you to ask Jacopo, Coordinator of “System and Generation Association”, to get some other information disclosed. Luck brought Kiril to meet with Jacopo in Istanbul, who helped him to come in Ankara and learn more about management skilss and have a better overview about different cultures.

Despite the myriad of questions we could pose, there was but one which sticked in our minds in terms of curiosity but also of relevance regarding this challenging call for cooperation to whom Kiril answered: “where do you see yourself in 5 years and which is your main aim in this very  period of your life?”. It belongs to the set of questions everyone should or already asks himself with frequency, especially if you belong to the immense family of students like us, thereof we decided to exploit the chance and ask it one more time.

His answer has been anything but very clear and straight-forward concerning his passionate will to explore the vast world of the international organizations and apply for a position in some of the most famous and important drivers of global change like UNICEF, ONU or the European Union.

Living in different realities within and outside the European Union, allowed him to see his personal path enlightened by his striving will to merge into new cultures and social values, nevertheless trying to find a common origin among them or maybe just a connection which could make his personal and cultural growth be even more consistent.

Therefore what for a better chance like the one over-mentioned could be presented to him? Kiril set himself very thorough purposes, such as gathering deeper understandings of the mechanism which drive the Organization both under a financial and organizational aspect. Those elements will be surely representing a useful and fruitful set of tools in his personal and professional career’s path, enabling him to be a game-changer element in the environment he will be inserted in.

Accordingly, his wishes and efforts have been showing off  a great pay-off so far, especially thanks to the amazing staff and network which is supporting him inside and outside the Organization.

 “I found an amazing team here, the most supportive and helpful i could wish for”. These are the affectioned words used by Kiril to describe his experience so far within the ties of the working environment he has been collaborating with so far, which leaves us with more than a wish to witness an enriching continuation, for him and for the whole network of System and Generation.
