Tatenda Mudara is a fourth year BA student at Khazar University.
I would like to thank my University with great pleasure for the two projects that I participated during my winter vacation (January-February). I was accepted to be part of the Aiesec Global Volunteer project in Perm (Russia) which was about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the process I also talked about my country Zimbabwe, Africa as a continent and my culture this amazed many listeners. Together with other participants we managed to break some stereotypes about Africa and to raise awareness on SDGs. The Aiesec Project was a huge success and from the core of my heart I would like to thank my Dean and the Rector of Khazar University who made this mission possible. Whilst taking part in the Aiesec Project, a collogue shared a link of The International Congress of Rural Youth which was held in Kazan another city in Russia. I saw the importance and good side of networking. I learnt a lot from the Congress, things concerning farming, Sustainable Development in Rural Areas and the value of taking part in different projects. Fortunately, I got the opportunity to explore Three different Russian Cities namely Perm, Kazan and Moscow within a short period of time. I encourage people to get involved in different global projects as it enlightens, enhances knowledge and broadens circle of friends. I learned about Russian traditions, holidays, values, food and I improved my Russian language skills.
Thank you Khazar University for giving me this great opportunity to learn more, I am Grateful.
