Hopefully living in a beautiful little house in central Europe with the woman of my dreams and the time to engage in all my passions.


Stefano Rossetto /26/Italy
Short description:

I’m a Digital Writer. I love writing short stories mixed with elements of the technology. My great passion is reading and writing, passions through which I won creative writing contests. I love writing in social network and forums; I manage a funny fan page in Facebook with over 4400 users (Il Pirata del Vallisneri), then I manage other four fan-page with many users. I love the technology world. I prefer to use open source software because I embrace its philosophy, so I’m able to use GIMP, the corresponding of Adobe Photoshop, and other application corresponding at Adobe‘s pack (Scribus, Inkscape) and to create a little game in Flash. I’m also able to create a blog (I have got one myself – https://ilpostmoderno.weebly.com). Now I follow a course of storytelling and video editing with the smartphone. I suppose that my friends consider me a little bit nerd. I like sports, such as swimming, watch movies, reading books and newspapers, listen to music and having fun with my friends. In this period I am currently doing a drama class, acting and improvisation. I like riding a bike and, in my town, if it doesn’t rain. I think it is useless to drive by car for short distances if there is no need to carry bulky items or if it rains.

Why are you in this project?

I hope that this EVS improves my knowledge of English. I want to use my qualities for the realisation of a new project that is useful to teach and give me the basics to find a job after the EVS

 Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

I live my life a quarter-mile at a time. Nothing else matters neither the mortgage nor the store, not even my team and all their nonsense. For those ten seconds or less, I’m free.

Cengizhan Turkistan/24/Turkey
Short description:

I currently hold a Bachelor’s of Art in Film Design. I have indulged in a variety of art education since my childhood. Such education and experience allowed me to develop a specific interest in cinema and I later began to appreciate the art of cinema and film as a gateway for illustrating the darker sides of reality. I have grown a passion for exploring the intricacies of human psychology and exposing topics that would normally be assumed as forms of societal taboo, through the medium of art.

Why are you in this project?

I seek to be surrounded by a variety of ambitious people with various and differing views, in order to broaden my knowledge within the art of cinema.

Since I was a kid I’ve always been interested in cultures and languages; I was born in Liechtenstein and moved to Spain and I feel this change is one of the reasons why I am passionate about travelling and getting to know different ways of living: maybe that is one of the reasons I studied Translation and Interpreting.

When I finished my degree in Political Sciences I decided to take some time off to travel around and try different things: that’s how I ended up in France working as au pair, in Spain volunteering in a hostel or here, helping to organise a film festival. So it’s hard for me to say what I’m doing at the moment 😀 “Well I’m on my way, I don’t know where I’m going, I’m on my way, I’m taking my time but I don’t know where”

Why are you in this project?
