“JURA”- New volunteer in Mreža udruga Zagor

Hello there, good people of Croatia!

I’ve been asked to write something like an introduction text about myself, you know, some sort of explanation of who I am and why the hell I’m here, so, here it is. My name (originally) is “Йордан” or, as the western dudes likes to say it: “Jordan”. 

In my hometown and around my family and friends I’m more known as “Yori”. Now, here, almost religiously, I’ve been renamed to “Jura” in the second after my arrival. By the way, you are all welcome to the ceremony, if there is such. (Some religious jokes… no offence, you know. ;D)

I am coming from an ancient, as they say, mystical country called- Bulgaria! You are now, probably, wondering: “What’s so mystical about this place?” And, yes! Exactly! It’s so mysterious that nobody has ever even heard of it, except the people living there. 

So I packed my cases, grabbed my stick and left my almost imaginable piece of land, I dropped my quite unprofessional kind of a job as a writer (not really ;), I’ve quit my drama acting education and my hobby as a hip-hop dancer to come here, in this beautiful country, for a whole damn year, to do my shit.

But, first of all, you have the right to know why the heck did I come here.

Here I am as a “volunteer”, a young European citizen, who’s getting paid monthly, arranged with a hell of an apartment and I didn’t even pay for the tickets to come here, doing… I don’t know what, actually… 

I mean, I’m here to promote some European values or something… apparently… I don’t know, I came for the free experience, to be honest. But, if I have to promote something anyway, then I would prefer to promote exactly this. The opportunity for this free experience, that has been given to me and is, also, given to you, just like that. I never knew this before, you know. That, there is some way to live for free… nobody is telling you about this in Bulgaria. I was just lucky to be at the right place, at the right time, knowing the right people. 

Sounds like a dream, right? That, you can just go, wherever the heck you want. Absolutely free, even better, getting paid to do your stuff, practise your hobbies, fill up your CV, experience an adventure or just… to try a new life.

So, that’s the reason why I’m here. I came to live a little. And for all of you, for all like me, that isn’t having a clue where the heck your life is going, the best advice that I can give you is just… GO!

You aren’t losing anything. (The European Union is paying! ;))


This sounds like some motivational speech. You can just print it and post it in your office’s toilets.
