We sometimes take things for granted and don’t always think about what others are going through.

IMG_6109Charlotte is a volunteer this semester in “Allies in English” with Alba, a 9 -year old with profound deafness and a cochlear implant. Here Charlotte reflects on her experience and what she learned.
Things are going good with Alba. At first Alba did not like English at all but I think she has made progress in that aspect and has started to like it a little more. She is also understanding more of what I say to her and remembering/learning phrases. The family has been great! They are very nice to me and have been so welcoming. The overall experience has been very good and I have learned quite a lot. Before this experience, I had not really thought about this issue at all since I had not ever encountered it. However, now it has made me realize that we sometimes take things for granted and don’t always think about what others are going through. Although I was told that Alba had a cochlear implant, I honestly did not realize until she put her hair in a pony tail and I physically saw it. That made me realize that we do not always know what someone else has or is going through. It also made me realize that more awareness needs to be brought up about this subject.
In the future: I would ideally like to work in an international company in Human Resources. At the moment I love recruiting as my goal is to make long terms golden matches between candidates and a company. I also would like to have a job where I use all three languages: French, English and Spanish. Which is why I am here in Madrid; to improve my Spanish!
Thank you very much,
Charlotte
Conozca a nuestra voluntaria, Charlotte:

IMG_6113Soy de Francia pero vivo y estudio en Atlanta en los Estados Unidos en Georgia Institute of Technology . Tengo un nivel medio de español y frances nativo también como el inglés. Estoy en el segundo año de la carrera de Business Administration con un concentración en recursos humanos .

Soy tranquila. En el comienzo soy un poco tímida pero con poco tiempo soy extrovertida y comfortable con la gente. Pienso que unas de mi cualidades es que yo se cuando estar seriosa o cuando estar divertida. Mis amigos dicen que soy simpatica, motivada, determinada y organizada. Me interesa cocinar, viajar y los deportes. Me encanta mucho descubrir nuevas comidas y simplemente aprender cosas diferentes. Soy curiosa. Yo gustaría participar en este programa porque pienso que para integrarte en una sociedad necesita ayudarla y hacer cosas sociales. Tambien, yo participe en un programa similar a esto en los Estados Unidos, entonces quiero continuar aquí en España. Ademas, pienso que no solamente yo voy a ayudar un nino a aprender cosas pero el va me ensenar cosas tambien. Yo tengo otras experiencias con ninos. Yo hizo 7 anos de babysitting con familias variadas. Tambien, durante 4 anos yo fui un voluntario a una escuela publica para los ninos. Yo fui a la escuela dos horas cada semana durante el ano escoliar. Durante estas horas yo trabajada con los ninos para mejorar sus matemáticas, la lectura, el ingles y cualquier cosas que ellos trabajan en sus classes.”
