What success at Stella's Voice looks like
My name is Aurica. I came to Stella's Voice in 2009 right after I finished the orphanage in Straseni. During my years at Stella's Voice I completed my schooling and graduated from university with a degree in Business Administration.
During my time at Stella's Voice I learned so many things and I have matured throughout the years I have been there. It has truly been the best opportunity someone from an orphanage can have. You see, the world we lived in wasn't kind and it wasn't pretty either; it was the place for abandoned, poor and worthless kids. Being in Stella's House taught me how to be kind to others. They showed kindness to us by taking care of all our needs. They taught us how to love each other and most of all to love ourselves, to believe in ourselves and that we are not worthless. Now when I look back I am so thankful that I was given such an opportunity, and it wasn't just so I could finish my studies. I learned a new language in less than a year. This gives me such an advantage at work or just in general social environments.
I have travelled to places which I could never dreamed of doing in my entire life and I have made lots of friends. I saw people being kind and pouring love and blessings over me and seeing this in other cultures made me change my way of thinking. I don't even want to think about what would have happened to me or what kind of person I would be today without Stella's Voice.
