I am Rugilė Simanavičiūtė
I am studying occupational therapy at Kaunas College. I am in my third year. Friendships with children began from an early age. I took the initiative to participate in projects, voluntary organizations that aimed to help children, provide greater opportunities to get to know the environment around us, explore it, understand their emotions and, most importantly, communicate. I have experience with children with developmental disabilities, using ABA therapy and I was international volunteer in “People to People International”, whose mission was to contribute to children’s joy, i.e. to organize trips, activities with wards in children’s homes. It’s nice to feel children’s smiles or warm hugs as they contribute to their well-being. In my eyes, what if not us, all the curious, will let ourselves understand how colorful this world is!
