Magda: Taking part in Connecting Opportunities has been an enriching experience as I have met many interesting people through the befriending process. My befriendee and I come from different countries and completely different backgrounds in terms of social system and political situation, but we are so alike. We share the same interests, have the same fears and joys, which we discuss over a nice cup of coffee almost every weekend. Mona is so lovely, optimistic, hardworking and funny, so spending time with her is a pleasure.
Mona: I have had a good experience of friendship with Magda, that was so good we meet each other and spend some time together having nice chat. Magda has always been giving a positive energy and spoken highly of me. We share good and bad moments together, i’m not feeling lonely and she is very kind and helpful.
Magda: The project is aimed at helping people who for various reasons had to leave their love ones behind and need someone to chat with, as no one likes to be on their own. I never imagined how big an impact it would have on me as well though. I have gained an amazing person as a friend, got to know different culture and was amazed by its beauty. I think both of us learned something new and became even more open-minded which is so important especially now when the unity among all of us is more important than ever.
