Michi Rohmann

EVS Coordinator

“My journey here started a long time ago. Or more precisely, it started when I was twelve years old, taking part in my first international group exchange between Germany and France. Since then I haven’t stopped and have been volunteering in different countries: Germany, France, South Africa, Tanzania, Cornwall and Wales. After doing all of these different kinds of exchanges and international volunteering, I wanted to take a look behind the scenes and understand how international volunteering works at a more organisational level. I have been very lucky to receive the chance of doing my European Voluntary Service with UNA Exchange and support the Exchanges programme for about 6 months. Since September 2015 I have worked as the EVS Coordinator at UNA Exchange, which is a very interesting and rewarding position, I think, as I actually help other people to have an amazing international volunteering experience (like I had and still have).”
