My name is Rares and I have volunteered on the project and participated in focus group meetings to design and create promotional materials for the Mega Mela event in July 2015. I have chosen to volunteer for this project because I like to help, to learn and to practice the academic knowledge that I have gained during my studies. I was interested in the gift-giving theme and so I decided to try this new experience. What interested me about this project was the Asian culture and habits, and this project has provided me with an insight. I was attracted by the fact that I could shape my creativity skills and marketing related knowledge.
I believe that this experience is a start to my future volunteering activities. I see volunteering as a ‘must do’ for everyone.
