Adea, 2010

I’m Adea Haxhiavdyli and I am 14 years old.   I just finished the 9th grade. During the Kosovo war in 1999 I lost my father. I was 3 years old and it was really difficult for me. I was 10 years old when I joined this program and I joined because my friends were there and they had learned many things about music and I was curious to know more. I became a volunteer when I was 13 years old. I became a volunteer because I like teaching children how to play instruments and that’s what I’m doing now. This program means a lot for me and helps me to forget the war. I think the program is good for children that they learn to play the instruments and not go in wrong directions and also they play different games. I plan to continue volunteering, go on to university, have a job and a family.
