some words from Russian student :- Anatolii Gorovenko

My name is Anatolii Gorovenko and I'm a 4th year student of PSHPU. I’m a volunteer interpreter for S.L.A.T.ECharity and I work with Michael Kerins founder of S.L.A.T.ECharity.

Working for S.L.A.T.ECharity was my first ever close interaction with a foreigner and it also gave me a chance to see Moscow for the very first time in my life. That alone was a huge change in my experience, but not the most important one.

Working and volunteering for S.L.A.T.ECharity, I was given a chance to see him, a talented artist, perform in Kolomna, Moscow and Perm and to discover a great friend and an outstanding personality.

It was in Moscow that I worked as a simultaneous interpreter for the first time. It was at the highly prestigious and culturally significant public library dedicated to Fyodor Dostoyevsky. I will never forget that experience.

S.L.A.T.ECharity members and local and international volunteers are very passionate about what they do, and that means the world to many children in Russia. The children and young people of Love’s Bridge and at the Perm School for Blind and Visually Impaired Children absolutely love these visits and appreciate the opportunity to interact with S.L.A.T.ECharity volunteers and interpreters.

I have witnessed the passion and love Michael gives to all the for S.L.A.T.ECharity work he does, and this is truly a magical experience. Volunteering for for S.L.A.T.ECharity  has motivated me as well and helped me to develop and grow as a person.

I wish all the best to for S.L.A.T.ECharity and their projects. I know for a fact, that S.L.A.T.ECharity is a very understanding and caring  organisation who love everything they do wholeheartedly.

It was a slo a great chance for me to see Michael award winners of KERINSNAUMOV Translation competition, it made me realize that people with language skills are valued and inspired me to develop as a professional in the language sphere. Besides, I have seen numerous people being excited and happy with the competition, so S.L.A.T.ECharity contributes a lot to both professional and artistic development of Russian students.

In summary, I was a part of a team of professionals, working with talented interpreters and a great storyteller. I learned a lot of teamwork skills, I improved my English A LOT and I have completely change my attitude towards charity programs, school work and work with children in general. S.L.A.T.ECharity has helped me a different person in so many ways, I grew as a person and a future professional.
