My experiences so far with IFALL!

Hello, there!

This is Lidia and I wanna tell you that my experience in IFALL has changed. Now it has become more complex, where I not only learn and get involved in what I do, but also model myself after what I do. Interaction with children has become more interesting and from which I can understand what they express, not just what they say and show.

Now, my work is about researching for different things, like projects, articles and Sweden! Helping here and being with people from here, and being part of what IFALL is, develops me as a person by understanding and learning that what is being done here is a complex thing where each member and volunteer is a help and a change in IFALL. Doing research and seeing in what IFALL is involved, makes me want to learn about how this world really is and makes me want to be a part of the help that people need. So far, every time was different, with the children and young people but also the office work that I am doing is changing because each time is different. And that makes everything nice and exciting! From doing research, I’m learning about Sweden culture and people, about how Sweden help its people with different needs and how Sweden really is. The work that I am doing is each time a new thing that I learn and that makes the time exciting!

Meet Lidia

Hey! I am Lidia Ichim from Romania. I’m 22 years old and I graduated Social work at University of Petrosani in Romania. I applied for Erasmus+ and now I am in Sweden, practicing for my degree at IFALL. First days here I meet a part of the refugees. We had outdoor activities that made us closer and we had learn about each other. One of the things that we did and I liked was that we had to play a game in which each one has to make a move dance. We had to remember that for every one. Remembering that meant that you care about the other and you want that person to be seen. I think that its what matter in working with the others. To care and be a help for them. Sweden is a beautiful country with beautiful people. I find myself a lucky person for being here. I like being involved in social activities and I consider myself a very optimistic person and that helps me in my interactions with the others. If you want to know more and you’re curious about more, come to IFALL in Sweden!

My Erasmus traineeship!


My name is Marya, I’m 19 and I come from Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

I’m in Sweden because an Erasmus traineeship related on Social Integration. And I’m staying here for 3 months so I hope I can learn and enjoy as much as I can.

On my pasts 3 years I graduated in performing arts because I wanted to do something different and I wanted to burst my creative side. After that I realized that my aim in life is helping others in a more personal way so I entered studying Social Integration.

The foreign countries have always called my attention and luckily English has been a language that I liked since I was little so here I have the great opportunity to improve it.

A side all this I’m a very humble and curious person, I like knowing other cultures, new people and listening to their live stories. I love any kind of music, arts in general and I sing. I’m empathetic too, I do care about what happens to the world, I like sharing with others thoughts and experiences, because there’s where you understand more about live and yourself. At last I enjoy thinking in new ways to evolve as humans in our society. That explains why in a future I would like to study psychology.

I’m waiting to see what I can offer to you!

Islander Sebastian

Hello, my name is Sebastian and I’m nineteen years old. I’m from Mallorca, Spain.
I have a levels in humanistic and socials studies and I’m currently studing a advanced degree in Social, Cultural and Touristic Animation.

I’m looking forward to work as part of a team. I have good skills in social abilities like active listening and team working, which could be useful to you. Apart from that, I am very flexible and kind person.

I have always planned to spend some time abroad during my studies to develop my professional skills and exchange ideas with different people from all over the world to better understand cross-cultural differences and improve my communicative skills.

Here are egalitarian in nature, humble and find boasting absolutely unacceptable. In many ways, prefer to listen to others as opposed to ensuring that their own voice is heard. When they are speaking they speaks softly and calmly.

I hope to help IFall in all their projects.

My swedish Experience

Name / Alexander Kravchuk

Why do you came to Sweden

I decide to choose Sweden as my destination with Erasmus plus project because this

place makes me feel like in my house, connected with the nature and also i always wanted to know the culture of this country and its history. So when I saw the option of this country I didn t have any doubt to choose it. Maybe this choose is related with the fact that I was born in Ukraine and this place makes me feel the same.

How can you describe yourself

I consider me a simple and flexible people that can respect all the people, things and situations that can happen in any moment of life but at the same time I have my own

IDEALS of life that help me to live better with myself and try to choose always the best option for me and people who are around me. I aspire to improve always with the consciusness that I am a person and I can do mistakes but those mistakes can help me in the future and I will can help to other people to not fall in the same mistake. I am an active person who loves sport and read books and I feel that with this two things I can understand better the world and understand better myself.

About my past experiences

In the past , I studied things related with tourism , hairdressing and catering. But I felt like studying this things I didin t feel realized and empty as a person, so I decided

to focus in other perspectives of life that can help me to see the life from another side and that is what I hope with this new Administration adventure

About Aitor!

Hello my name is Aitor and i have 19 years old. Im from Spain and more specifically in Valencia, i have come to Sweden for making a Erasmus Programme and this is my first time in this country.

I am a person who likes the sport to improve the body, such as the gym or the calisthenics, especially this last, and I’ve been experimentation about 3 years and I’m really happy about what I’ve changed about when I started in this sport.

It is the first time that I go out of my country and its great, I think that I like more and more traveling, although i travel only 2 times in plane, the 2 times i going to Mallorca and its beatiful, they have a perfect weather in summer.

In my free time i love taking photos of the nature and of my friends, portrait photos or landscape, I’ve been 1 year since I started to do photography and i think i have a good photos, my photos are uploaded to Instagram, at the account @ukaarephoto

I like Sweden, the nature and the air is pure, the weather is a little cold but its fine, Orkelljunga its a good town, it has everything to be a village, in this month i will here i’d like to visit more citys in Sweden, like Stockholm, AngelHolm, Helsingborg, all of this sites they have good spots for making photos, and they have a lots of things to do.

There is an a example of the photos i make:

About Adam!

My Name is Adam Eleftheriou and i have come from Westside Circus, Melbourne, Australia. I am 21 years old and have been with the circus for almost 5 years.

When i was younger i used to keep to myself because of things that used to happen to me, but when I joined with Westside circus it taught me how to express myself, learn in new ways, communicate with peers and people, and has given me lots of opportunities to grow as a person. Being with the circus has provided me with so many great opportunities, and the latest of which is coming here to Örkelljunga, Sweden to share my knowledge with everyone.

This will be my third experience with groups from across the world and Erasmus Plus as i have been apart of a project called “National Treasures” which brang people from across the country to Melbourne for over a week, and one time took myself and others over to the UK. It was an opportunity for all of us to share what we knew and what we could do. It made us all much more aware that there are differences in the world and that it is awesome to feel accepted.

In Australia my job was being a full time Disability support worker, this involved understanding how people felt, and trying to make their life better in lots of different ways, this aim is also true for circus, it allows people to express themselves in a lot of different ways, circus facilitates, growth, learning, expression, trusting, and being able to communicate. Circus is an inclusive area that allows people no matter how experienced to feel included and gives everybody an equal opportunity.

While I am here in Örkelljunga I will be hosting circus schools on sundays and invite everybody to come! The more the merrier! During the time of teaching I hope and aim to show as much Australian culture as I can, and to learn just as much about here. I also aim to help people of all ages learn and grow in a non-formal environment, everybody does everything in many different ways and I aim to help everybody I can reach. After all the circus IS about trying everything.
