Andreea S.

36 years old, foreign languages teacher. Volunteer since 2009.

Why volunteer? Because I see around me too many people that indifferently pass by, looking the other way. Because, all alone, I cannot do much. Because I need to know that there are others like me as well, and even though everyone is having a hard time, we all move on.

My job is not important. I would have helped animals even if I were an astronaut or hairstylist. Why animals? Because I can talk with them and I know how to listen to them. Because I see suffering and discouragement in their eyes too often, and happiness and hope too seldom. Because I care and it hurts. Because, if I didn’t help them, I wouldn’t consider myself a human being.
