Recent university graduate (majored in Linguistics, Translation/Interpreting â€“ Russian, English, German; and Russian Language Teaching) living in Russia. I believe international volunteering with IC can help me gain experience, learn more about the world and meet new interesting people, become more resilient and flexible. Languages are my occupation and vocation, my passion is photography, graphic design, animation and filmmaking. Russian poet, Nikolay Zabolotsky once wrote, â€˜â€¦your sprit must work night and dayâ€™ which can be interpreted as that one should never forget that we are surrounded by people who might need our help, so, never hesitate to them, make your spirit work. And this, I believe, is the very essence of volunteering.

My name is Lucrezia Martorana. I took a degree in Modern Languages and Literatures of East and West (Eastern Curriculum). I have attended an annual Master in Arabic Translation. This advanced experience enriched me both professionally and personally in that I was able to study new topics, work with CAT tools, moved to a new city, worked and interacted with unfamiliar people. I translated texts from English into Italian for UNRIC, the Brussels based United Nations Regional Information Centre. So I have the willingness to work under pressure in order to meet deadlines. I have good organizational skills, acquired in the experience of library job, ambition and perseverance in achieving a goal. I also have good interpersonal skills with the public and good propensity for problem-solving.
