    Inside Out Project

    I am Samela. I am currently on vacation. I have volunteered other times in life and I wanted to do it again, but in the Olympic games, so that is why I am here! In volunteering there's a lot of hard work and pressure, but in the end its all worth it with all the fun and the people I get to know! For me working in such a massive big event like the Olympics is an experience I will carry on for life and I believe that such experiences build me as a new, better, person. I used the "silence" expression on my photo. Sometimes there is just so much pressure and stress that the best thing to do is stay in silence and think about the best thing to do.
